Hi,

OK, its powered up, but appears stuck, see image.

I might need to submit this request to Cisco Engineers - you have been great with helping me getting the vm working.

Cheers

Refer to Developers.

The original question has been Answered. I would submit a new Question, possibly in the Cisco topic area, if anyone has seen this issue.

You did configure the VM correctly or check the VM, I'm not sure where you got it from, or what the VM was previosusly setup for...

Post a new question, and we can discuss the setup in more detail.
