Post Not saving changes and configurations after reboot
Hello.
--- newbie on vshpere ---

I have installed esxi vshpere hypervisor free on a boot usb and a good compatible machine. (based on shuttle sh67h7 as many people)

I have a problem. I boot from a USB stick and all is working fine, but it is impossible to remember the configuration after reboot.
no management network, no virtual machines, no nothing,

If I modify something in the datastore, after reboot and add again the management network and the virtual machine, it works fine.
but if I do something related to the system, as changing the management network or the IP, i loose the changes after reboot.

I am pretty frustrated, because I don't really know what is happening.

I need some help or directions where to see something.

thank you.

system:
shuttle sh67h7
i7 3770
local datastore harddisk barracuda

verison:
VMware-VMvisor-Installer-5.0.0.update01-623860.x86_64

Seems that the system is having trouble writing the backup config file. If you access the console and run - /sbin/backup.sh 0 /bootbank/ does the system update the state.tgz (or local.tgz) file in /bootbank?

you are right.
it looks for some reason the USB was in read only mode (¿?).
it has solved repartitioning it, and installing again the hypervisor.

Thank you.

I realize this is an old thread, but this is the exact issue I've been trying to resolve for over a year now and it's the first thread I found which describes my problem. If you'd like me to start a new thread, I can certainly do so.

Can someone explain how to troubleshoot and fix this issue? I ran the command shown by Dave and it would appear that the system DOES update the state.tgz from the console, which, quite honestly, surprised me. This may be completely normal, but I'm new at this shell stuff. Should bootbank be pointing to /tmp?

Thanks!
