SPLAT R76 fails to install on VMware ESXi 5

Hi everyone

Just a quick one: I went to install the open-server version of SPLAT R76 today on our ESXi host and ran into an error almost immediately. It was the same anaconda error that is found in CheckPoint sk92354 :

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 661, in ?, dispatch, configFileData)
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/", line 441, in run
rc = apply(win, (self.screen, ) + args)
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/textw/", line 56, in __call__
splatCompProcess("Software Blades", screen, meothod, sc,selectedProductsObj,prodLine)
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/textw/", line 48, in splatCompProcess
while (sc.copyNextFile(CD) == -1):
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/", line 231, in copyNextFile
ret = self.copyFile(source, dir, dest)
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/", line 85, in copyFile
os.write(d, count)

Changing the SCSI controller from VMware Paravirtual to LSI Logic SAS allows the system to run through the initial configuration/formatting correctly.
