System Architect Essentials I (7.1) PVS exercise system does not run Using VMware Workstation Player
System Architect Essentials I (7.1) PVS exercise system does not run Using VMware Workstation Player.The .ova file is imported and played succesfully on VMware Workstation Player and shows the message "Pega 7 Exercise VM started on ......" but the URL to enter into the Pega 7 shows only http://:9080.
I tried with the url http://127.0.0.1:9080 after finding the ip using ifconfig command on theVMware Workstation Player window.but cannot be accessed.
When I shut down the VMware Workstation Player through "Shutdown guest" option I noticed that "PostgreSQL" DB is shutting down message.Please help.

Thanks Ashutosh for your reply.I have already installed VMware Workstation Player, now installing Oracle VM will hamper anything,as I am using VMware Workstation Player for PRPC 6.2 SP2.Can you please guide me how to download and intall it.
Thanks Abhishek for your reply.I tried localhost and only prpc. but it did not work.I will try again with "prpc.local ".I have already installed VMware Workstation Player, now installing Oracle VM will hamper anything,as I am using VMware Workstation Player for PRPC 6.2 SP2.
It is just two hypervisors (one from VMWare and other from Oracle) you will be running. So there is no harm.
For the prpc.local / localhost / ip address related question... as long as you have the local admin access and have access to change the hosts file entry, you can make entry for the prpc.local pointing to the IP picked up by the VM you are running, you will be able to access the Pega Server just by using the prpc.local. However, at times, if you are running multiple hypervisors hosting different guest OS, they may pick the IP mapped to prpc.local on the hosts file. So do not get bogged if one is working and other not. When you get into such problem, take a look at the hosts file, if you have played with it.
The guide you sent said to extract the downloaded archive using 7 zip,,but for 7.1 Leavaraging Pega/System Architect Essential 1+2 for Pega 7.1,pls note 7.1, offers download exercise system /VM in .OVA file extension.Does it require to extract using 7zip or I just import it using Oracle VM Virtual Box and click the play button?
