Install BI Platform and setup Windows AD authentication

This week I want to test the integration of a BI Platform to my .Net program. So I want to install a test version of the BIP, but my virtual machine hadn't enough space. The first step was to extend the space of the disk. It is very easy in VirtualBox to extend the disk.

  1. Open the Windows Console
  2. Go to the path where you installed Virtual Box. (Default: C:Program FilesOracleVirtualBox)
  3. Type VBoxManage.exe modifyhd "Path to the disk" --resize 100000 (=100 GB)
  4. Press Enter and your VirtualBox will be extended

After my VirtualBox was ready I could install the BIP. But the next issue was found very soon. I need a license key.
