How to create a new virtual machine and assign the downloaded Edge Service disk image in VMWARE Player
Start by creating a new Virtual Machine to host a Linux 64bit OS.
Press "Customize Hardware" to give more RAM and CPU than the default settings allow.
Press Close once edition is done.
Press Finish to finalize the machine creation.
VMWare Player has now created a machine with a default disk that we will replace with the correct one.
Right-click on the new Virtual Machine and select "Settings".
Navigate to the existing Hard Disk and select "Remove".
Then select "Add" to create the new one:
If you have two .vmdk files, choose the smallest of the two .vmdk files, otherwise choose the one that was extracted from your Edge Service archive download.
Your Edge Service is now ready to start.
