English [Auto] I again. So let's start our first boot of our first E6 I saw click on comply. Let's put it in full screen. You see it's it's like any machine it's loading the VM where it asks. I so this is the first boot for our ears. I was I told you the VM where I 6.5 the anchorman the brand of the host and how much hardware that we have. So we have two Intel Core E-5 with a speed of two point five kilohertz and we have four bytes of memory. So make sure you do hardware that you have in your machine. So simple loading as any operating system if suntanned of this file hub are perdu will get on missiles that something wrong we do a station or we operating system. So what is it our machine is loaded successfully. As we said this is the interface that you will see in any physical host that you have. Ah yes I install it on that. So as you see the information in the above part and in the second part we do you know Cannot you see don't know how to manage this host from the IP address 1 9 2 1 1 6 8. Queen 1 Queen 4 and you see its That's mean this a tickets for on our DCP and we see our model. The other is is do it Division 6. The first one is a provision for it. And the second one is IP version 6. So as you see it automatically take it from the GCP. So after leaving your house for a while without touching it it's back to black and white. This is to save the screen of the physical host because your host will still boot all the time. So I try to consume less by what and save the screen to not be damaged because color for a long time on your screen will damage it. So just we need to use the keyboard to activate the screen. And as you see we have to customize system and view look and F 12. Shut down and restart. So of course the first thing that we need we need to customize the system so we click and to as you will see on TV station required it onto an auto related route logon name and password for holes home. So as I told you by default is route. So we need to take the password to get access to the server. So the password I use on would press Enter know we are inside our ESX I host. So the first option that we have is graphic password if you want to change the password you need to tape enter and enter the old password then the new one and confirm it. Of course we don't need this step we click Cancel then the second option config lock down is not available. We'll see it later. And do we have the config management network. This is the important step to start working with our host. We need to configure the network to start using our host. So for that you click on turn and do is say this is the config management network you see here the network adapter and when you see via Minick Internet Zettel this show. RS do it turn it on the To. After that we have in this machine in a real environment with your server or with your physical host of course you will have more than four or six network adapter you would sit them on right here and chose between them. But in our lab we have only one is what other. So we see only one network adapter as you said the other three listed here provide the default network connection to and from this host. So this is the one that is active. It will be your only one who use it to work at the beginning. Then when we start configuring some other tool we need to use some other network adapter. We can chose between them. So when two or more adapter are used the connection will be full and out of when traffic will be load balancing. Thats mean if you have more than one network adapter thats mean if you to network other to do the load with the balance between this double network adapter. So do you see we click on touch to see how much network that we have. As I told you if we have a second one we need to down and top space to the selected and click the two sided I like you see had to detect it then that is zero. The MAC address so I know that information is all the vitriol. A network adapter that we have with VM when it will start we do double zero. And of course if you want to know more about it you can search for the Web site or the Wii remote but it's not important in our love. So just a quick information that on the MAC address starting with double zero it's our vitriol network adapter because we use here a virtual machine. So that means the network adapter that we use is a virtual created Drog the VM workstation. So the connection stuff is connected and used by vse which is zero. We'll see what is this which is Zale later. So OK so Harry can see all the network adapter that you have and check them which one active and is not active. Of course we only have one then we have the villain option. Its not important no. And then we have the EPEAT vision for configuration. So we need to do it did the IT division configure it to customize it to work for us. So the first thing that we need to do is not use our dynamic IP version for of course all the servers should be use a static IP because the dynamic IP is not our professional work. To use a dynamic IP every time with the API it changes. You were lost all the connection or the software that's configured it to connect to that server. So we always used to be vigilant for static. So we click space to go from dynamic to static. Just click space and the option will be active for changing the IP address from dynamic to static. So we go to every other ish fashion for as you will see this is the other is that we are going to use and I need to customize it to make it easy to work. So as you know my route would have to be addressed 1 9 2 1 6 8 1 1 1. This is the default. Got you. So then as my network used by other devices for example I use my phone my other laptop etc.. So there are some people who will take it by the machine and to avoid have collision between those devices. And this is why I would use IP that is different to come in to begin to of with a have a collision between them. So I would use the number ten. So this is the IP address for Isak's II. Number one will be 10. And when I create another Isak's I follow up is that E6 I to I will give it 20 for example and the other one for example 30 etc.. It's information about what you want to choose but I won't try to make it more simple and more organization. So I would use some simple IP address too easy to remember. So give it up a number 10 did the IP address of this host will be 10 the souvenir mosque. We keep it in operation about the network that you have for example if your network is the IP address class B or class A. You chose do it that that is what you want. For example 10 10 10 and one for example. Any idea that is what you want in relation about you company and network the user. So in my network we use the class C the simple one. So we click on to configure it so as we see here it provision for address is become 10. Then you have the IP version 6 of course it's not more useful. So click on Talk to either did I word disable it Division Six because I don't need it and still not use it in lots of company. So it just disabled IP version 6 because we don't do this and the sim if you want to use a static one you just select the static IP version 6 and do you see a message that if you disable the provision do hosts will reboot all required restart. So the presenter. OK then we have the DNS DNS is the router that I have. So where do you see it of the DNS. And here you can add another DNS server. If you have another one and have the host name the host name that we give to this host as you see here is localhost. I will change it to Year 6. I won just to make it simple. It will help us to see 3:6 I know which one we use. So I give it a name. So I of course you can't give it any name that you want information about the DNS server that you have. So when you want to connect to this host you need just use do hostname. Of course if you have a DNS but in my situation I don't have a DNS server yet. So the hostname would not want to help me to connect to this host. So presenter we have caused DNS. This costume is the suffix of the DNS that we use in the beginning. We chose is X I mean do suffix will be home for example. So the name will be Isak's. I got home or is I want dot home. You need to customize this in your company. In addition about DNS and the configuration of the server et cetera. So this is a customized in the region Abaza do invite them to new music. So just to know this is the fix so please. And when we finish with click ship to exist. And as you see configuration management network. So Harry asked you to upload a change or not. So apply change and reboot. Host because you disable the Division 6. We need to reboot the host all we chose not to leave everything as it was. So of course we click yes. So like that see to host when rebooting restart host impulses. So what is it. So as you see the name become ESX I one and the other is it's become 10 with a static configuration. So this is the new IP address and the configuration of the host. So next we do is see more configuration that we can do. Yes. I don't actually.
