SAP HANA Express: HDB Daemon not running, uuidd missing

I am trying to deploy the SAP HANA Express VM. I downloaded the hxexsa.ova virtual machine and imported it into my VirtualBox (Bridged, freshly updated to Version 5.0.28 r111378 on MacBook Pro).

The VM has 12GB of base memory. I logged on as hxeadm and tried HDB info. I did not see the required services as per installation tutorial so I tried HDB stop -> HDB start. Got error message

FAIL: process hdbdaemon HDB Daemon not running

According to this troubleshooter I checked the packages by zypper info and found out that uuidd was missing.

I tried zypper install uuidd and got message

Root privileges are required for installing or uninstalling packages.

Now I am stuck. This is my first contact with Linux and I am not sure is there something else wrong. Please help.

Update: I reimported the hxeda.ova into VirtualBox and now it works.
