How to "Copy shine.tgz to your virtual machine."

Hello,

Today I spent several hours Start Using SAP HANA 2.0, Express Edition. I used the tutorial from www.sap.com/developer/tutorials/hxe-ua-getting-started-vm.html.

At step 17 (I skipped 14, 15 and 16 because I don't do text analysis and Eclipse) I need to copy shine.tgz to my virtual machine. But how???

I use VirtualBox 5.1.22 and having searched for hours I haven't found a way of copying and extracting the SHINE files.

Does anyone have an idea?

Best regards,

Johan Ellen

BTW: I tried mounting a share, but that doesn't work because I lack Guest additions (which I don't seem to get installed).

BTW2: I also tried ftp, but I couldn't seem to connect to the HXE server.

    Hello Ellen,

    The HANA, express edition comes on a virtual machine with the VMware Tools preinstalled. Please uninstall these with

    sudo vmware-uninstall-tools.pl

    and you should be able to install the Virtual Box Guest Additions after adding an optical drive to your virtual machine, allowing unsupported modules in /etc/modprobe.d/10-unsupported-modules.conf

    allow_unsupported_modules 1

    and installing gcc and the kernel source files

    sudo mount /dev/cdrom /mnt
    sudo /mnt/VBoxLinuxAdditions.run

    Alternatively, you could put your file on a web server and download it with the get command.

    Best regards

    Frank
