How to setup the Virtual Box Machine for Advanced Track Labs

Step 1. Download and Install Oracle VM VirtualBox 4.1.8 + on your system.

Step 2. Right - click and choose Save As... to download the files: (OTN Login required)

URLs and MD5s for file parts - split into ~700MB chunks for your download convienence:

Filename Notes, MD5 checksum
assemble.sh  
assemble.cmd  (windows users may need to rename downloaded file from assemble.cmd.txt)
VDD_WLS_labs_2012.ova.1 e975042002f8ab56ae95142fee55ef31
VDD_WLS_labs_2012.ova.2 5736f52d71b9aa76ad94dee36b3567ee
VDD_WLS_labs_2012.ova.3 0f9900fb1c0a00e2b7a880a0d17a277a
VDD_WLS_labs_2012.ova.4 007cfeb66e9ce78f7c8cb7a61ea5a33c
VDD_WLS_labs_2012.ova.5 b2180b488b55aafbb0178ed7e627648c
VDD_WLS_labs_2012.ova.6 e1198ddc91249fb8b73c81df8b09ee5c

MD5 of assembled VirtualBox Appliance file:

VDD_WLS_labs_2012.ova = c50bfdabdafc7e1f7ebf85422663655f

Step 3. 

Use your Terminal, command prompt, or shell to assemble these files using the provided scripts. We highly recommend checking MD5 sums on the assembled OVA file before attempting an import.  If the checksum on the assembled is bad, simply start checking the sums for the part files until you determine which one was a bad download and re-download.

  • For Windows use the script assemble.cmd
  • For Linux/Unix use the script assemble.sh

Step 4.

Launch VirtualBox and import your VM: File > Import Appliance to launch Appliance Import Wizard. Click Choose... to browse to the directory you re-assembled all the files in and select the VDD_WLS_labs_2012.ova then click Next> to begin importing the virtual machine. It will prompt you to agree to the appropriate developer licenses while importing. You will see 'VDD_WLS_labs_2012' (Powered Off)' when it is finished importing.

Step 5. 

Test your VM: Once the import has completed, double-click the VDD_WLS_labs_2012. Click OK to close the VirtualBox dialogs. When you get to the Linux 5 screen you can now login. The username and password is oracle/welcome1. Once you are finished working in the guest VM you can shut it down via Gnome's System > Shut Down; this will return the guest VM to the Powered Off state.

While in the shut shown state, review the default memory setting and optimize it for your machine. To do this, right-click your imported VBOX image and choose Settings > System as shown below. Then change the memory setting to be "in the green". This will obviously vary on your system, the Windows machine shown in the screen shot has 8GB RAM.




Step 6. 

Test your VM: Once the import has completed, double-click the VM to begin. Lab documents are located in folders on the desktop.  

Once you are finished working in the guest VM you can shut it down via System > Shut Down; this will return the guest VM to the Powered Off state.
