Resource consumption

You should have 2GB of main memory availabe to run the IVA . It has one virtual disk which is about 1.2GB and may extend to about 2GB in size.

Inside the appliance

If you want to go a bit further you can login to the IVA using root / vagrant (root / idempiere for the IVA 2.1 version)

Root is the only user here as the IVA has been created for testing only. When you want to install iDempiere for production use it is recommended to use a different user - like 'idempiere'.

Depending on where you are in the world typing text inside the machine may give you strange results. Then execute setup-keymap to select a better suited keyboard layout.

Technical data

IVA has been setup using Alpine Linux which claims to be "Small. Simple. Secure."

Besides the content of the alpine-mini-3.2.2-x86_64.iso the following packages have been installed:

- postgresql (9.4)
- postgresql-contrib
- openjdk7-jre (1.7.0_79)
- ttf-freefont
- mc (4.8.14) which is the Midnight Commander, my favourite file manager

There is no graphical environment.

The idempiere init-script is based on the one from the IDempiere_Debian_Installer
