Confusion around SAP Hana Express Edition


I am a total novice when it comes to using VMWare so am looking for help.

1. I downloaded and imported the OVA file into VirtualBox and everything seemed good.

2. In the instructions however it mentions about locating the IP-address of the VM using the command /sbin/ifconfig. I ran this but see HEX values next to the enet0 entry. How do I find the ip-address? QUESTION 1

3. The instructions then mention that I should go to the VM Desktop and 'start a browser', however I seem to be in a terminal console window so how the heck do I get to the 'VM Desktop'? QUESTION 2

Please help !!!

    Hi Brian - in response to your questions:

    1) The doc includes a screenshot and you can see that it circles the inet addr in the eth0 interface section. Check to see what the IP address is in your case - eg. in the doc, they list the example IP address as

    2) You just use the browser on the machine where you're running the VM software. You can keep the VM running but exit the VM window (eg. I do a Ctrl-Alt with VMWare Player) and then use the browser from your host machine.

    Regards, Mike
