Running the free trial on a MBP Starting up the Delphix engine server, getting Network Interface not configured.  Network Adapter default is Intel PRO/1000 MT Desktop (Bridged Adapter, RealTek PCIe GBE Family Controller)  which it can't find. Further down this thread someone suggests going back into n/w settings and clicking OK.  That didn't work for me.

Any help, gratefully received.
Thanks

That likely just means it isn't pulling DHCP on the interface your virtual box is bridging. You may need to change your VM's to a Host Only network in order for it to provide DHCP addresses.

If you have booted up your Linux VM's, do they have an IP address displayed on the console screen?

Adam, thanks for trying to help.
I've switched all 3 VMs to be Host Only adapters. No ip address displayed on the console screen. The Delphix Engine is a green screen as per video but does say 'Network Interface not configured'

Did you reboot the VM's after making the change?

Yes. Uptime is about 13 mins on the 2 VMS.  Trying to get into the ENgine VM, log on .. then the green screen goes red.  Would this be any easier if I went to VMWare ?

If you are not "Virtual Box savvy", then I would advise it. At the risk of starting a flame war,  Virtual Box is not as intuitive and end-user friendly as VMWare. I am an expert at both, but Virtual Box requires a certain amount of advanced understanding in order to use. But, Virtual Box is completely free, so people want to use that as a first option.

You can download a free trial of VMWare Fusion and use that to get working with Landshark, and spend time becoming more familiar with Virtualbox later, if you so chose.

That being said, several people are using Landshark on VirtualBox.

Adam, i'm on VMWare. The 3 ova files downloaded, imported.  None appear to be displaying ip addresses ! Delphix Engine is green ... but Network Interface not configured.  In each case the n/w setting are Autodetect. The Dephix Engine screen has just gone a depressing red.

I forked your VMware question into a different thread so it would be easier for people to find and search.

To try and get the networking sorted out for vBox, try this article I just wrote.
