2 fresh installs and I see same behavior. i upped the mem to 8092 in vmware and have powered it on. Previously it just hung after about 15 min being up. Had to power cycle it. Adding things like svms and vols from gui was mightly slow before she hung totally. Hoping the mem increase fixes it.
So like a previous poster said, change the mem to 8192 in vmware and boot to loader, change the sim bios mem to the proper value, which is like 8192x1024 then in my case had to setenv a variable where rdb was corrupt, back to 0, and she booted and seems to be way faster. fyi
