    The step by step installation has been very helpful. Couple of questions for you –
    1) /virtualdb/racnode1/racnode1.vdi – is this path on C drive? If not, where is this being created? By default, racnode1.vdi is being saved in the C drive. I get an error if i try to save it under a different path.
    2) racnode@netbackuptest virtualdb – have you created a machine netbackuptest?
    3) I am unable to create the shared disk. I get an error – VBoxManage not found.

    can you please explain this.

    thank you

    • 1. I am not used to install virtual box on windows, used linux machine. So here If you want to use windows, better create a new folder on any windows where more space available and after choose your virtualbox storage location on this particular directory and then here the storage racnode.vdi stored.

      2. Yes netbackuptest is my host machine (linux)

      3.If you want to create shared disk in windows, you should create a directory on target host OS and here create a shared disk and also VBoxManage should be work as a Administrator, When you’re trying to create shared disk using this command like below

      Open command prompt as a administrator

      Go to VBoxManage location, It should be on C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox

      use this command
      VBoxManage createhd –filename d:\aparna\shareddisk\asm1.vdi –size 10240 –format VDI –variant Fixed

      d:\aparna\shareddisk\asm1.vdi — shared disk
