Question: 

I'm unable to unzip the Micro Cloud image for VMWare!

Answer: 

Applies to Stackato v2.2.x

The default/standard OSX command line unzip utility does not support extracting large files in archives.

Solutions: Use 3rd party unzip tools such as p7zip or unarchiver:

1) p7zip
More Info: http://p7zip.sourceforge.net/

2) unarchiver

This issue has been resolved for future releases by splitting the VMware zip into max 2Gb components.
