Installing an #Exasol 6.1 Cluster on VirtualBox

After having installed the latest VirtualBox version, an ISO file with the latest Exasol version has to be downloaded. The machine hosting VirtualBox should have at least 16 GB RAM and 80 GB free disk space in order to run a 2+1 Cluster with 3 data nodes and one license server. I’m doing it on my Windows 10 notebook.

1.5 GB RAM is sufficient for the License Server and it needs only one disk

Insert the ISO file as a virtual CD

Make sure the License Server boots from CD first

Configure the public network for the License Server

Now power on the virtual machine just created and configured. It should come up with this screen and you type in install

Choose a password. I used exasol12

Enter the public IP of the License Server. My VirtualBox Host-Only Ethernet Adapter is configured with 192.168.43.1 – therefore I use 192.168.43.10. It should also work with the VirtualBox Standard setting, in this case use 192.168.56.10. When in doubt, call ipconfig from the command shell.

The installation started from the last screen took me about 5 Minutes. Now type local and wait for the License Server to boot from disk. You may remove the virtual CD from it afterwards.

Do yourself a favor and pause for 5 Minutes after the machine booted from disk before you try to connect to EXAoperation. I’m using Chrome because it didn’t work well with FireFox:
