If you do not have a DHCP server on your local network, there's a neat workaround...
Configure the Virtual Appliance for host only networking, and boot. This will get an IP address from the DHCP server built into VMware. Once you configure it for your static IP address, and shutdown. Configure the VA for bridged networking (or whatever) your preference.
The later version of the LAMP VA supports shell access if you wish to configure the interface yourself, but the above procedure works very well and is quick and easy.

The specified credential admin:admin worked for admin console.
However I got errors when using the same credential to login to console and SSH.
Is there another credential I shall use?
