Notes on running the VM image

Download the VM image from here:

Unzip the file using 7-zip. Open the .vbox file by double clicking. It may give you a couple messages, and below are the solutions

  • Install the Oracle VirtualBox add-on pack. Also make sure you are using VirtualBox 4.2
  • VirtualBox may say that the Realtek network adapter is not installed. Go into the VM’s settings. Make sure that bridged adapter is selected. Click Ok to save the settings.
  • VirtualBox may complain about a missing CD/DVD image. You may release the CentOS 6.3 image in the virtual media manager.

Once you have the VM running, you can login as nidb, password is ‘password’. su to root and type ifconfig. This will display the IP address for the NIDB installation, which is on the second line for eth0: “inet addr:”. Go to a browser (preferably Google Chrome) on your host machine and type that ip address in. You will see the NIDB login screen. Login using admin/password.
