After the appliance starts up for the first time, after an OSRestore, or OVF Template delpoyment, you are prompted to log in. Once you log in you are prompted to 'bootstrap' the device, i.e. provide the IP, DNS and NTP addresses.
Even though the bash shell has loaded and presented a login prompt, the post-install scripts running in the background are not completed.
You should wait at least 2 minutes after seeing the login prompt before you log in and assign the IP, DNS and NTP information.
