The VM should be joined as usual without any kind of problem. Just check your VM is in the same IP range as the domain controller (because sometimes VirtualBox configures the VM network as 'NAT'instead as 'bridge' which is what you need to be in the same IP range). Regards

For this to work, you need to setup a dhcp server for the internal network, which, for some reason I do not know, can only be done via CLI. So issue the following command: VBoxManage dhcpserver add --netname intnet1 --ip 192.168.173.254 --netmask 255.255.255.0 --lowerip 192.168.173.1 --upperip 192.168.173.99 --enable This will setup an internal network ...

You can disable the Win+L Windows-lock function with a registry edit. You'd need to add the following reg key and value: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System] "DisableLockWorkstation"=dword:00000001 See this guide for more details and a download for a .reg file to to add the key automatically.

I got permissions denied when I tried to run "VBoxLinuxAdditions.run" so I changed the file /etc/fstab to user,exec. Other than that the steps that gronostaj mentioned worked perfectly. Explanation from virtualbox forum: ..the filesystem is mounted with the noexec option, so the execute permission bits on all files are ignored, and you cannot directly ...

Detailed description of this process is on this page: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/XenServer/VirtualBox In VirtualBox machine network cards you have to set allow all in Promiscuous Mode and several other options and you can have os inside vm e.g. Xenserver inside vm e.g. VirtualBox.

The real address is fe80::1:1, or fe80::1:1%enp0s8 with the scope identifier. Prefix length (the /64) is only used when configuring the interface and is not part of the address. It is equivalent to the "subnet mask", and you don't give the subnet mask to ping either, do you?

Something must have gone corrupted. A definite solution to recover from such situations is simply to make a copy of the Ubuntu's virtual hard drive (.vdi file) and than create another virtual machine and set it to use the .vdi copy you've created. Provided it worked, you can just get rid of the files of the VM not working. Find the .vdi Since you've ...

The problem is that VirtualBox can’t find the file in that path for the VirtualBox machine. What I do in cases like this is delete the machine but do not delete the files so the machine is removed from the VirtualBox list but the files connected to it are left untouched. Then find the actual virtual machine files, double-click the ubuntu.vbox file to get it ...

Make sure that Hardware Virtualization is enabled in your BIOS. Usually it is disabled by default. VMware and VirtualBox cannot run virtual machines without enabling it.

I use this for my VDI image mounted to virtual Debian in Windows VirtualBox. It isn't a general solution, but it should at least give you a gist of what I do.

5chdn's solution is too cumbersome. Instead of Alt, use Win+Alt in guest and you're done. For example, to use Rubymine's multiple caret mode, original shortcut is Alt+click, which becomes Win+Alt+click. Easy peasy.

No, the GPU inside the VM is emulated, so you can't install your host GPU driver. If you need such programs, that heavily use the GPU, install them on the host and not inside a VM.

If running the installer again does not give you the choice to uninstall VirtualBox, let's try to manually remove it (folders, drivers, and registry entries).

For number-crunching programs (very CPU-bound), there should be almost zero performance hit for the VM. The instructions run directly on the CPU, which is the same for host and VM. Even for serious compilation tasks, the performance difference is hardly noticeable. We run CentOS VMs in VMware on Windows. Since you're running Linux on the host, you might ...

There is no one single good answer to this. It depends a lot on how you use a VM and on which programs. E.g. using VMWare (a type 2 hypervisor) and a purely CPU bound program yielded almost full CPU speed. If I used the same hypervisor an a program with a lot of system calls I would get a serious slowdown. And things alos change when you use a type 1 ...

I had the same problem and got it solved after following a tutorial (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q3vuWmrBDMQ) that uses the clover bootloader. Unfortunately there's a catch. You have to go through the bootloader process (pressing F12 and select OS launch button) every time you start up the machine. If you don't follow that you get serial number 0. I ...

I was just wondering whether this will make the host connection also under VPN. No, it will not. But let's take a moment to discuss different network types for VirtualBox and how it effects VM network structure. If you configure your VM to use NAT to access the network then your traffic from your VM will be translated to your host's IP address using ...

If its Virtual Box, are you sure you've installed the guest essentials? This is a requirement for Virtual Box to pick up external folders/shares from your home OS. I'm fairly sure this includes USB devices: https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch04.html Shared folders These provide an easy way to exchange files between the host and the guest. Much like ...

You are getting a 0x80040154 (Class not registered) Windows error. This means that VirtualBox either isn't installed on your machine, has a damaged installation or some of its components needs to be registered. Like many windows applications, VirtualBox registers certain DLL files during installation, and never does this again. These DLL classes are ...

A straightforward way of achieving that would be to change the specific configuration in the grub2 bootloader directly: Find out the resolutions supported by your debian guest Reboot debian and keep pressing c until you see the grub console. Press vbeinfo and hit enter. It will give you a list of supported resolutions. Edit /etc/grub.d/00_header ...

My answer is related to console mode Linux only. So, please be aware of that. If you are using Linux with no X-Window installed (like usually servers do) than you'll need to edit /etc/default/grub file adding following lines: GRUB_GFXMODE=1980x1200x32 GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=1980x1200x32 Then update grub config: sudo update-grub and reboot your ...

Impossible to tell. At that time of the setup the normal OS infrastructure isn't running yet so normal ways to determine the process-name don't work either. And you are using a non-standard version of XP (it is calling itself MicroXP in that screen which the real Microsoft XP's do not) so it could very well be that whoever build that particular custom XP has ...

I made a tool to simplify the entire task. You can download it from this link. Also, you can have a look at the code if you are more interested to know the backend functioning.

The problem is that you only have the intel AHCI driver inable, and not the generic one. So you have to enable drivers that aren't.

Probably the problem is that you don't have Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package installed on your system. The easiest way to install it is to use chocolatey (https://chocolatey.org/).

From the FreeBSD side, it will work if you make the filesystem issue TRIM (use https://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?tunefs for UFS; ZFS does that by default) and mount the storage over a medium that can pass TRIM requests (eg iSCSI).

You can read why in the current version of the user manual for the startvm command: Starts a VM with detachable UI (technically it is a headless VM with user interface in a separate process).

Mint's XFCE has application shortcuts that you can assign to apparently any key (or combination) in the Keyboard settings. If you can assign a shortcut to your media keys, then you could run a command or script that would switch to VirtualBox & send the desired keys. Maybe a macro program? I tried it with my keyboard, it's got 3 "user" keys, an ...

All x86 chips should work with both VMware & VirtualBox, but you'll need AMD-V (AMD name for hardware virtualization) to run 64 bit guest OS (it's possible to run it on Bochs or qemu, but far slower). For simplicity sake, you can just search the CPU series on cpuboss since AMD own site isn't too easy to navigate.

There are two things that I can think of: Your inserted SATA controller (U2.vdi) is wrong and you need to insert the correct one. Your IDE Controller is empty (which is less likely than the first solution).

I have the same issue and haven't found an ideal solution yet. How about mapping some key combination to the media features? I use Super+F10 for mute, Super+F11 for volume down, etc. Then you could change the system setting in the OSX Host to use all Fn keys as normal Fn keys for a two button shortcut in Ubuntu Guest (Super+F10), or leave the Fn keys as ...

I don't have a OS X system to test this with (but it works on vbox on windows, and won't hurt to try) , but if you're primarily working in the VM, turning off autocapture should do the trick - least when I tried a shortcut on windows.

One or both of these two things are probably blocking you. The windows firewall has three Classifications, Domain, Private, and Public.

It' s possible: Windows 7 as a HOST with VirtualBox/VMware and you virtualize a other OS (Win7, Win10, GNU/Linux ...) will be the guest. Process: Install Virtualization software at Host.

It is possible to run any kernel version inside the virtual machine, just as it is possible to run other operating systems or even emulate other processor architectures.

Another possible avenue: I have a Dell XPS 730 (BIOS firmware 1.0.6) with Windows 10 Pro. I had the Virtualization "enabled" in the BIOS, and Windows would not recognize the firmware as having it enabled (witnessed by running "MSINFO32" on a command prompt.) I had to un-enable it in the BIOS, boot into windows, then re-enable it in the BIOS for windows to ...

VirtualBox requires Intel's VT-x (or AMD's AMD-v) to be able to host 64-bit guests. Source Look up your processor with the manufacturer, and if it does support VT-x, ensure you have no other hypervisors loaded/running (ie: Hyper-v) that may be hogging the VT-x, making it unavailable to VirtualBox.

By default, Mint is using the NetworkManager daemon to manage its interfaces.
