-Virtual Machine image System Information:​ +
- +
-      * Virtual Machine image based on Ubuntu LTS 64bit +
-      * user name / password: **smartsoft / smartsoft** +
-      * sudo password if needed: **smartsoft** +
- +
-See additional information for working with the virtual machine: [[tutorials:​vm-welcome]]. +

-==== How to start and stop the Virtual Machine ==== +
- +
-You have two ways to Start the Virtual Machine:  +
- +
-  - Start “VirtualBox”,​ import the just downloaded ova-File, and then start this Virtual Machine. +
-  - Double-click the just downloaded ova-File and all gets started within “VirtualBox”. As “VirtualBox” starts the prepared Virtual Machine appears as a virtual computer inside your computer. In our case, this virtual computer is run by Ubuntu LTS. +
-     +
-We provide a “ready-to-use” installation of the SmartMDSD Toolchain in this virtual computer. It comes with all necessary examples to follow the tutorials. If you are new to virtual machines: Please always shutdown your virtual machine as you do with regular computers. We recommend to learn more about advanced methods to save the machine state and snapshots, see [[tutorials:​vm-welcome]]. +
- +
-You can shut down the VM from the guest operating system as illustrated below:+
  
-{{ :tutorials:launching-vm-and-toolchain:​shuttingdownlikeanormalpc.png?300 |}}+In case you are using a virtual appliance, please see [[tutorials:​vm-welcome]] for additional information on working with virtual machines.
  
-You can also shut down the VM from the virtual box management GUI. This will issue an ACPI command. It simulates pressing the "power button"​.

-==== How to update the Virtual Machine Image ====+===== How to do updates =====
 It is recommended to update your svn repository and the installed SmartMDSD toolchain. Double-click the “Update Virtual Machine” icon on the Ubuntu Linux desktop in the Virtual Machine. It is recommended to update your svn repository and the installed SmartMDSD toolchain.
