Create NAC Server on VMWare (ESX) April 15, 2011

Posted by ZoeL in Cisco, NAC, Security, VMWare.

Our objective is to create NAC Server or Manager on VMWare Server.
First we need to create an instance for NAC with specific SCSI Storage type.
I tried use default SCSI type and NAC OS could not see the harddrive.

1. Create a new Virtual Machine

2. Specify Name for the new VM

3. Specify the new VM storage size

4. Choose any 32-bit Linux OS

5. Input HardDisk size for the new VM

6. Click “Edit” option below to specify more specific options

7. 1GB Ram should be enough

8. This is the most important part, choose the “New SCSI Controller” and click the change type button on the right

9. Choose “LSI Logic Parallel” for the CSCI Controller, i tried other type during installation and NAC Installer could not see the HardDrive/Storage.

10. Deafultly, VMWare use VMXNET for Ethernet Type. Click NIC option, and remove it.

11. Click ADD, and choose Ethernet Device

12. Choose “E1000” as NIC type, ignore Network Label for now. Typically, NAC must have Trunk type connection.

13. Next and finish

14. Finish

15. Convert 1 free vmnic to be use as Trunk Interface

16. Add new Virtual Machone Connection

17. Choose one available vmnic

18. Create Network Label and choose VLAN ID with ALL VLAN (trunk mode)

19. You’ll see one new Virtual Switch, next we need to attach the NAC-Server that we created before to this virtual switch

20. Right Clieck the NAC-Server and choose “Edit Settings”

21. Choose Network Adapter 1 and change the Network Label to the that we created before

22. NAC-Server need 2 Trunk Interface (Trusted and Untrusted Interface), so we will need 1 more Trunk Interface

23. Change the Ethernet type to Intel E1000 and choose network label (trunk)

24. Next and Finish.
