I was able to proceed further in configuring the virtual machine but I am stuck at this point now.
"In the VMWare server console ensure you highlight the NAS VM in the inventory pane and under the command pane click the "Add hardware" option and add a new disk 20GB in size, pre allocating all disk space (shown below)."
I added the 20 GB disk but my laptop got very slow and then I powered on the VM.
But I was not sure if I had done this correctly so I performed above step again. Both the times, my laptop had to be restarted as it hung up.
I was not able to check the VM and see if this disk was indeed added but from the host machine I could see 40 GB disappeared.
Now, I tried the next step.
"Power on the VM and and from the host machine login to the Freenas console using the URL http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the IP address assigned previously"
I powered on VM and in the host machine, I typed in http://10.10.10.2/ , but the message is "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage". In fact, I had give the same IP address as in "Enter the new LAN IP address" section of article. Not sure, if I am doing these steps correctly.
Please provide your suggestions.
