I found what the problem was. Vagrant creates two adapters, one NAT, supposedly for the ssh connection, and the bridged adapter that I asked for in VagrantFile. If I disable the NAT adapter (ie. through VirtualBox) and leave the bridged adapter active, suddenly it works, and I can access the webserver from the internet. If I leave the NAT adapter in, I can ...

It will go to the wired connection, or the top-most connection on the connection settings. They work one at a time, but with tools like Connectify, you can access more than one connection simultaneously. If you are connected via LAN you can access shared folders in different computers. If you are connected to a wireless connection, you can access those that ...

The problem went away with later versions of virtualbox.

For Microsoft Windows OS, default Storage is in %HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%\VirtualBox VMs Which typically expands out to C:\Users\[username]\VirtualBox VMs The subfolders will be named with the Name: field contents entered in the Create Virtual Machine dialog where you're asked to enter Name and OS information. If you've decided to do a little more ...

First of all, does the VM have an IP address? Many corporate networks will only give an IP address to registered MAC addresses, and the VM's network interface will have a MAC address not registered with the company. If you don't have an IP address, then you can try to use one that's not used by another computer. Most probably you would have to do all the ...

You might have to still Mount it. Try to look into this, the Mount command. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MountWindowsSharesPermanently Update: Better yet, try this command. sudo mount -t cifs //ip_of_host/share/path /local/mount/dir

Host-only network for a vm usually add an additional subnet (192.168.A.x) to the host machine with a virtual network adapter. You should check which ip address is assigned to the host and which to the guest in this virtual network. on mac open a terminal and use "ifconfig" or "ip addr" to get ip addresses for the host. On linux do the same and view ip ...

That sounds like a Driver Signature Problem. So, how do we solve that? We can get Technical and actually read the Crash Dumps. That will tell us which file, but lets try something more basic. We need to Verify System Files. Much like a Virus Removal, some System files are changed / corrupted. If an Update doesn't take, it will leave the OS in the same ...

Two possible reasons are firewall and SELinux. The following commands will list the SELinux status and iptables firewall rules. sestatus iptables -L You can also see these from Yast.

Yes, and no. Yes, the VMDK-disk image can be understood by both ESXi and VirtualBox. No, the complete machine, as in the XML-files that specify what virtual hardware the guest is to be presented and other metadata, cannot be understood by both ESXi and VirtualBox. Also, snapshots will make it impossible to transfer the disk-images from one to the other in ...

The VBoxManage command line interface provides more control over VirtualBox than the GUI. You can add an existing VM by running this on a terminal: VBoxManage registervm /full/path/to/the/.vbox/file notice: use the full path to the .vbox file. Relative paths wont work (Im on version 4.3.20r96996) This command will only register the vm and wont copy/move ...

Yes, you can use RDT but if the computer is not on the network and you want better control, I would use "TeamViewer" search it in google and check it out.

You can not use the same virtual file to boot in both Exsi server and virtual box since this might corrupt the files and wont work as you expected.But you can create virtual machines using ovf and ova formats and both will react as different instance where the changes won't be committed/synced in between the virtual machines.

I ran into crippling slowness on a Mid-2011 iMac in Fusion 7 after upgrading to Yosemite. It wasn't Fusion, but all hypervisors were hit by a bug found across the Mid-2011 lineup. If that sounds like your Mac, you can fix it by restarting after running: sudo nvram boot-args=debug=0x10 I'm not sure why it works, but it does. Here's a Parallels KB on it. ...

Try uninstalling the SVGA driver. It's not working for Yosemite (yet).

You need to remove the Virtual PC "Guest Additions" (under Virtual PC), then install the Virtual Box "Guest Additions" after you boot the VM under VBox.

The desktop virtualization technology VirtualBox does indeed provide live migration. It is called teleportation though. An example can be seen here. XEN does provide this functionality. And KVM provides this functionality as well. And VMWare provides this functionality as well through vSphere. Edit: Microsoft Hyper-V provides this functionality as well.

You may be able to get the guest OS to "think" it didn't shut down, even though it actually will. Don't most VM's have a way to save to disk a "snapshot" of the running guest system? Then you can close it normally, move the files to another computer, and start it up again loading the "snapshot" so it thinks it's been running the whole time... Or, to keep ...

We found an answer. After all the hours of digging, it is almost embarrassing. The solution? When prompted for an activation key, use a DIFFERENT Dell OEM activation key. That is it. Dig around on some old PC, find the key, use it. Worked for us for two or three migrations of this kind. Once virtualized, we have moved the vm around, ESX to workstation ...

The latest version of VMWare player seems to play .vhd files out of the box. Create the VM using "I will install the operating system later." and then when the VM has been created edit its settings to remove the existing empty virtual hard disk (.vmdk) and then add the one you created from the .vhd

The Virtualbox manual has a section describing how to adjust the default NAT interface behavior, Fine-tuning the VirtualBox NAT engine. You can alter the IP address range and submask, change the behavior of the DNS resolver, and other things. The actual changes are made through the VBoxManage command (in other words, there's no GUI). For example, to change ...

Yes, technically this is possible, using raw mappings. You would basically install Linux normally, as a second OS, so you will be able to dual boot. Then in Workstation, for example, you would use the existing OS install as the drive for the VM. Have a look at this article on the VMware website: Configuring a Dual-Boot Computer for Use with a Virtual ...

I answered a similar question, but it's certainly not a duplicate. Here is the redacted version of my other answer. First make sure your disk image is in raw format. If you create it from dd, this is probably already the case. For VirtualBox you can use the vboxmanage command with the convertfromraw option. This converts your disk image to a format that ...

I'm assuming you're comfortable with linux, since you're using dd. So I would be tempted to take the dd created image, and booting a VM from a live Linux iso, dd the image back onto a new virtual hard drive in the VM. Then reboot the VM (without the live iso) and hopefully it will boot from your newly "copied" virtual hard drive.

for those wanting to convert the drive instead of using a transparent virtual disk, or link... (took me around 20 minutes to convert a 32GB USB drive to vmdk) VBoxManage convertfromraw \\.\PhysicalDrive2 D:\VirtualMachines.vmdk --format vmdk *\.\PhysicalDrive = number of your USB drive found in Disk Management *D:\VirtualMachines = this is the path I ...

Even though this is not exactly a clean solution, it seems like I found a workaround for this problem. Running the command vnetlib -- install vmx86 in the Workstation directory reinstalls the deleted service and the vm can be powered on again (even without rebooting the host - but that's why I consider it only a quick'n'dirty solution and not a permanent ...

It's possible to restore a QCOW2 image created using e2image -Q using e2image -r. For example: # e2image -Q /dev/sdb1 image.qcow2 # e2image -r image.qcow2 /dev/sdb2 Note that I tested this with version 1.42.12 of e2fsprogs. As of >= 1.42.9, e2image also supports the -a flag which allows you to include filesystem data in addition to metadata: # ...

Your question is very incomplete: which host and guest OSes are you running? What are you trying to do with the vhd image, build a VM on it, or just mount it? If you are trying to use the disk do1.vhd as the main disk of a VM, you will find here very thorough instructions on how to do that. If you are trying to mount the image from within the VM, the ...

Localhost can't be reached from another station. Talking about localhost makes only sense when you try to reach the machine you are currently working on. Example: I am Peter - I am talking to ME (= localhost) You are Bill - You are talking to YOU (= localhost) Always when I talk to localhost I am talking to myself. If I want to talk to you so I have to ...

My Windows ISO I downloaded didn't have the XP controller installed. I finally figured it out. I downloaded file from: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/detail_desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=18717 then transferred to the VirtualBox and installed. After installing it worked perfectly.

I guessed when you added the 2nd adapter, it have the default gateway setup also that either override the existing default gateway or have better metric, then Internet traffic route through to internal switch. You can verify it by check all destination "0.0.0.0" routes by command "route print". If it is the case, remove the default gateway of 2nd adapter ...

If I run simulations on VM and do other works on host machine, does this effect the performance of VM? Since the VM is sharing the hosts' resources to exist, then the more host resources you assign to other tasks the less that will be available to the VM. Less resources = less performance. Is it better to run simulations on host machine or ...

Another method is continue use one NAT adapter but use "127.0.0.1" as the port forwarding host IP. The port forwarding rule will be something like (you might add one for UDP also) Protocol : TCP, Host IP : 127.0.0.1, Host port : 3000, Guest IP : "guest ip", Guest port : 3000 Then you can use 127.0.0.1:3000 to access the guest. The loopback interface IP ...

I believe this may be a limitation of VirtualBox itself. When you start the Virtual Machine it "reserves" those 2/8 cores (even though it didn't need them for a child process).

So, first: regions like us-east-1 contain availability zones like us-east-1e. S3 operates in terms of regions, whereas many EC2 concepts (including VPC subnets and reserved instances) are specifically concerned with availability zones. The ec2-import-instance documentation shows how to specify both a region and an availability zone. Try --region us-east-1 ...

According to this FAQ from Microsoft (here): Windows 7 Starter only comes preinstalled—mostly on netbooks—so you can't buy and install it on your own. It's designed for doing the basics, such as using the Internet, sending e‑mail, and creating documents. This suggests that even if you do get installation media and edit the config file as discussed in ...
