I will be testing the new download for virtual appliance today and will post back experience.

The install could not have been any easier. Just went smoothly!

A couple of suggestions:

1. Memory was initially configured at 1MB. So, I could not use guest-additions. Simple remedy was to go to settings and configure display and system settings for more memory. After that, no problems. I would suggest setting up virtual appliance with more memory, some people might not know how to fix.

2. xorgsetup took a long time to configure x. No problems other than slow.

3. Desktop icons would not initially launch due to sms being the host name in url. I had not changed the host name, so was surprised that it did not work. I switched name to 'localhost' and all worked.

All in all, a very nice job.

thanks for the effort

I have set a memory to 512MB, have you import the SMS-1.5.0.ovf xml file?
When you import the SMS-1.5.0.ovf it should print a list of settings.
from SMS-1.5.0.ovf
Code:
 <Item>
        <rasd:Caption>512 MB of memory</rasd:Caption>
        <rasd:Description>Memory Size</rasd:Description>
        <rasd:InstanceId>2</rasd:InstanceId>
        <rasd:ResourceType>4</rasd:ResourceType>
        <rasd:AllocationUnits>MegaBytes</rasd:AllocationUnits>
        <rasd:VirtualQuantity>512</rasd:VirtualQuantity>
      </Item>

The default X was set to 1024x768 but X is slow on virtualbox although vboxvideo module is loaded. I haven't try 3D acceleration.
Some apps require localhost and not bind to hostname, but that's a minor fix.

I'm glad you like it.

Yes, I imported SMS-1.5.0.ovf xml file.

I have been using and so far everything is working and going well. I cloned our community forum to virtual appliance and have been testing and trying things that I would not do on a regular box.

thanks for this.
