Today I spent several hours Start Using SAP HANA 2.0, Express Edition. I used the tutorial from

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


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/

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

Best regards
