Vertica Community Edition Experience in Oracle Virtual Box

manoj_dixitmanoj_dixit Community Edition User

Very much excited to practise using Vertica Community Edition. However, when imported into an Oracle VM environment, I don't feel the UI experience (not of Vertica console) is that great. I mean each time I need to use the host key to move the cursor out of the VM. Also, I am not able to maximise window as per the display / monitor size.
Any ideas how to resolve, please?
Thank you.
Kind regards,

    Thanks @s_crossman for your reply. The links are helpful. But I need to work little hard to resolve the issue.

    After installing Guest Additions (there was an issue first which was solved by installing gcc perl and make) all is good now. Once again thanks @s_crossman .
