Hello,

I would like to test Dataiku on Windows via a virtual machine.

I have followed all the steps of the following link:

https://www.dataiku.com/dss/trynow/virtualbox/

Yet, at the end, it doesn't work when I open the URL in my Firefow browser. The web page is like I wouldn't have access to internet (while I have, since I can log on other websites).

Do you know which problems can happen at this step?

Thanks

    So, I have been struggling with some of the same issues. Here are the things that I had to change in order to get things going.

    1. The OS on the VM is a 64bit version. On importation of the virtual machine the Operating system selected was a 32bit Ubuntu. I had to change to a 64bit Unbuntu.

    2. Then I go an error that my bios was not set up for virtualization. Using the VirtualBox Documentation. Once I found the right spot in my bios, then the virtual machine started.

    Once I go through that the start up screen eventual came up on the VM looking like this.

    Once I got to that screen I was able in my browser to go to http://127.0.0.1:10000 and go to the web site. Then I had to figure out the startup password for the site. The documentation is fairly clear at that point.

    Hi,

    Can you please share more details about step#2 - bios not set up for virtualization.

    Following the steps listed here - https://www.dataiku.com/dss/trynow/virtualbox/

    I am able to follow till step#3 whereafter I am unable to start the machine (using normal start from the start menu), getting the following error:

    Failed to open a session for the virtual machine dataiku-dss-4.0.1.

    VT-x is disabled in the BIOS for all CPU modes (VERR_VMX_MSR_ALL_VMX_DISABLED).

    Result Code: E_FAIL (0x80004005)
    Component: ConsoleWrap
    Interface: IConsole {872da645-4a9b-1727-bee2-5585105b9eed}

    I was able to find conflicting advice on internet regarding the following:
    Virtual Box "Settings" > System Settings > Processor > PAE/NX option
    Some say to enable it, others to disable it, and some to disable and then enable it back again.

    SOLUTION: I reduced the RAM allocation and get past the above error without requiring any changes to BIOS

    Thanks /
