Can't use serial ports in esxi 5.5 with csr1000v
Just wondering how did you setup your serial port on csr1000v?
I created the serial port on one of my VM and with option "Connect to network", "Port URI: (example) telnet://192.168.2.1:2014"
But I couldn't telnet to it, and vsphere gave out error: Serial port connection control operation failed (202).
Looking at the logs, it says:
- Failed to connect virtual device serial0
- The currently available license does not permit use of remote serial ports.
Now my question is, can I still use Gigabit1 interface in my CSRs just for mgmt, say use the 192.168.2.1 on it (so that I can telnet to it) and put the sub-if of Gigabit1 to follow INE's IP Addressing scheme? Any problem with this?
If there is, any other solution?
