Even though, there are no caveats in relation to importing the Virtual Appliance using VMware Fusion,
it is important to remind users to grant permission to VMware Fusion to fully execute on OSX, specially after installing it.

The following message is displayed while running the VM without the permission granted.

The permission should be granted on System Preferences > Security & Privacy
