But when i am installing the same rhel6.2 DVD on VMware ESXi5.1 on a VM on the same workstation on same DVD drive its getting install smoothly & working fine. so the DVD drive is working fine. And also when i am installing in my laptop its getting installed smoothly & working fine. so the DVD disk is also fine. I have been researching what is the Root Cause for this issue.
I have test all the RAMs of my workstation but no errors found, its working fine. the .iso file is also working fine from where i am writing the DVD. my HDD is also fine because VMware & windows are installing fine physically.
Can anyone do a Root Cause Analysis & tell me plz because its most important to setup for clustering lab. and i have been trying it for one month but unable to find the cause.
Yes, Red Hat support can do a root-cause analysis for you. Have you contacted them? Since you're using RHEL, you are paying for it, right?? That means you're also paying for support.
Also, what you're describing doesn't make sense, in the context in which you've posted it. You say that you're trying to install it on a workstation...that already HAS it running under vmware. If your goal is a 'clustering lab', why not just spin up a few more of the existing VMware images that already work??? The errors you're describing are typically because of a corrupted image (unlikely here, since you've got it work elsewhere), or that the DVD has problems at certain speeds. VMware is probably reading it slower, as is your laptop....have you tried burning the DVD images again at a slower speed, or installing from USB drive?
