Check if viewpoint services are running on your Express VM or not.

Steps to follow.

Service status.

Open Terminal and give below command

#/opt/teradata/viewpoint/bin/vp-control.sh status

If you see Viewpoint service status as unused or any other services are unused then you may start the services with he below command.

#/opt/teradata/viewpoint/bin/vp-control.sh start

Note: PostgreSQL services will not be started by executing above script, to start postgres run

#/etc/init.d/postgresql start

After starting services wait for approx 10-15 minutes for portlets to be initialized, It is a VM on Windows so it takes time.

Port 9080 is not required simply localhost should work for you.

You can test by using WGET command in terminal

#wget localhost:9080

or

#wget localhost

see if you get login.html or index.html page downloaded.

Thank you very much for the respnse.

I have found that there is an issue with settings of the .vmx, it is working now.
