Video Description

This training video gives participants step by step instructions in how to set up a lab using VirtualBox software (this is available to download online). After downloading Virtual Box, participants learn how to create a new virtual machine (VM). Participants learn how to adjust the settings, then hit start and learn how to log into Ubuntu and create a VM environment. Participants learn how to create a full screen as well as a shared directory between the Windows environment and the VM.

Video Transcription
00:03
So these are the instructions you're going to need to follow in order to set up your own lab.
00:10
So the first thing we want to do is actually download
00:15
the virtual box software,
00:18
and you're going to look for the specific
00:22
operating system that you're going to be running virtual box on.
00:28
So I encourage you to go ahead and go to to the Ural www virtual box dot or GE and go to the downloads section.
00:39
So once you've installed virtual box, you will have this manager come up, and this is where we're going to create a new V M image for you to run in virtual box.
00:53
Now, you're not going to have any images here if it's a fresh install A like I have. But we're here to create your 1st 1 together. You're going to click new,
01:03
and
01:04
here you're going to type in.
01:08
You want to
01:11
12 4
01:15
class,
01:18
and, uh, this is actually a 32 bit version.
01:23
You're gonna click next. You want to increase the memory size
01:27
to be at least 2048 If if you can handle that, if you can't, if you don't have enough ram than 10 24 will work.
01:40
Now, Here you are actually going to select the VD. I file that I provided to you for this class, and so you'll want to bring up the browser
01:53
to select that file from your file manager
01:57
and then just click create.
02:00
So just a couple of things you should know. If you look into the settings,
02:07
there is something interesting to take a look at in under storage.
02:13
You're going to see the VD. I file that I gave you you that you selected from your browser from your file browser,
02:23
and you're also going to see solid state drive that is actually check marked. So this is important. If you do not have solid state drive
02:34
on your machine, you may want to go ahead and uncheck this just to ensure that it will work properly. The other setting to make note of is the network setting.
02:46
So if you need to connect to the Internet, you can have it as not. You can set it as an internal network on Lee, or you can set it to be bridged, and so any of these settings would be fine.
03:04
You will should not need to connect to the Internet.
03:07
But if you do, you would just change it back to net.
03:10
Okay, so at this point, you're ready to click. Start, make sure you've got your image highlighted and click the start button,
03:23
and you should see the splash screen Come up
03:28
and see you. Bun to loading
03:35
now. Effort, load. You know, you should hear that little sound. There are these keyboard notifications here. This is for coming in and out of the virtual environment.
03:46
Uh, please take a look and read them, or Justin notes down about what they say. But at this point, we're ready to go ahead and log in to R V M session
03:55
and the password for the U Bahn to account is the word reverse all lower case. So that's our e v e r s v. And then just click the enter key
04:10
and it should start up your V m. Now my VM is actually full screened. And the reason for this is because I have the guest add ons added, This is very easy for you to do. If you would like to do this,
04:28
you just go up
04:30
to the devices menu
04:32
and select. Insert guest additions. Seedy image.
04:38
That image will be added to this
04:43
this task far over here on the left,
04:46
and you're also going to be prompted to to actually run it.
04:49
And so you would just click run here. It would bring up a terminal and basically install the additions so that you can have
05:00
capabilities such as the full screen as well. As if you wanted to create a shared
05:06
directory between, say, your Windows environment that is your actual host and this VM you can you can have that ability by installing thes thes guests editions. So just a added perk, the guests editions are optional.
