  1. Log into the eG administrative interface.
  2. Follow the Components -> Add/Modify menu sequence in the Infrastructure tile of the Admin menu.
  3. In the COMPONENT page that appears next, select Oracle VirtualBox as the Component type. Then, click the Add New Component button. This will invoke Figure 1.
