3. Setup Guide¶
3.1. Set up a New ESX VM and Mount the ISO¶
Create a new VM with your virtualization software. In this case, we will use VMWare ESX managed through a VMWare VCenter.
The new VM must be configured with a Linux base system and Debian GNU/Linux 10 (64 bits) as target version. It is recommended to upload the ASGARD or MASTER ASGARD ISO to an accessible data store and mount the same to your newly created VM.
Please make sure to select a suitable v-switch or physical interface that reflects the IP address scheme you are planning to use for the new ASGARD.
3.3. Changing the IP-Address¶
ASGARD's IP-Address can be changed in /etc/network/interfaces. The IP is configured with the address variable.
nextron@asgard:~$ sudo vi /etc/network/interfaces
Important: There might be a case where the name of the network adaptor (in this example:
ens32) can vary.
The new IP can be applied with the command sudo systemctl restart networking
3.4. First steps in the VM¶
3.4.1. Change Password at the Command Line¶
Login to ASGARD and type
passwd in order to change the password for the default user
nextron. The default password is
This step is not necessary if you used the new installer ISO, since the password will be already set during installation.
3.4.2. Change Password for the web-based Interface¶
Login to the ASGARD Web interface with user
admin and password
The admin user has limited/restricted access to some sections to ensure the correct audit of certain actions. In order to access restricted functions which require an audit please create an user with the corresponding rights under
User Settings and update your password.
