What do I need to run the appliance?
VMWare ESXi, workstation, fusion or player. This VM image was created on VMWare ESXi 5.5 and uses VM Version 8.

Install Instructions:

The VM is built on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, there are two shell accounts setup by me, netdisco and disco. The Netdisco 2 install instructions also installed an account called postgres. All passwords are netdisco. The VM is setup to use DHCP, if you are on a network with no DHCP, login on the console, edit /etc/network/interfaces and there is a sample interfaces.static that you can copy over interfaces and edit. Restart the network or VM to activate changes.

start at the Configuration step in the Netdisco 2 Install document :


change passwords for netdisco, disco, netdisco user on database (named netdisco)
