I've got ESX experience, but am trying an ESXi 3.5 for the first time on an old Power Edge 2650, and am trying to install the Twiki appliance - I can copy the machine files to the server and add the .vmx file to inventory, but the appliance does not run. ("The attempted operation cannot be performed in the current state (OFF)" Is there a different way to install the appliance? I tried the Virtual Appliance / Import feature but it failed with an error, and I can't seem to find any documentation on here about actually installing the appliance
Do I need to be on ESXi 4.0 instead of 3.5? The box is old and not 64-bit hence the reason for trying 3.5.
Any tips or help is appreciated!
