Login Prompt never displays on RH running in VM
Linux version 2.6.18-194.el5 (email@example.com) (gcc version 4.1.2 20080704 (Red Hat 4.1.2-48)) #1 SMP Tue Mar 16 21:52:43 EDT 2010
Am using VWware ESX to host this guest operating system. When it clears post, the screen goes to the red background you typically see right before the login prompt comes up... but it never does. If the machine made it on the wire I can putty to it, but through deploying these, the machine isn't always on the wire and I need to be able to use VMware's viewer to gain access to it. Any suggestions to get to the bottom of this?
I am a novice linux user, appreciate the help, thanks
