    Thanks, Romeo, for giving this helpful overview. May need some extra effort to dig deeper to better see the difficulties and benefits. The path is given. Many thanks to those who collected the lab material and those who made it available to us.

    Dear all, the PC I'm using right now is definitely underpowered to run the BigInsights Quick Start Edition VMware Image. I wonder if someone would be so kind to volunteer to team up with me for the hands on session (four hands being better than two, at times)?
    See you after tomorrow!

      I found my error, the RHEL is configured for English keyword, as a consequence password was not password on my French keyboard...

    In case somebody prefers KVM over VMWare Player I've just tried it and it works fine as well (but won't be officially supported during the workshop :)

    Just type : kvm-img convert -O RHEL55-64.vmdk RHEL55-64.qcow2 and then: kvm -k de-ch -m 8000 -smp 2 -hda RHEL55-64.qcow2 -vnc localhost:0
