Installing Fedora Server 24 on a VirtualBox’s virtual machine

Now that we have installed VirtualBox on our PC , is time to start with the preparation of our virtual cluster. The first is install Fedora Server.

  1. Open VirtualBox and click on New Machine button

  2. This machine will be the master node on our cluster, for that reason @yulwitter name it as MasterVi (our Virtual Master, thanks for the fancy name). Clearly we need to set Type to Linux, and Version to Fedora (64-bit) (or Fedora if you have a 32-bit version). After putting the mane and set the RAM memory to 1024 MB press Create.

    Select the Expert Mode again, and set the space of the virtual disk in 16 GB, then press create.

    The final part of this step is make our Virtual Machine available in our network. In the Network menu set Attached to to Bridged Adapter option, then select the name of your network interface, in my case this is wlp2s0.
