4. Press several times 'Next >' and in the end 'Finish' button.

5. Then wait several minutes until deployment completes.

6. After that run the VM and login as root with scalix password.

Note: for security reason we strongly recommend to change the password.

7. If it's the first scalix initial startup you'll see Welcome message and interactive scalix configuration tool. Please follow the installation and set IP, DOMAIN, FQDN (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fully_qualified_domain_name). Additionally you can change the password and user for tests.

Note: at least one NIC should be configured with IP.

8. In case you need to reconfigure current setup (e.g. change fqdn and domain) you can run sxinstall in console.
