I got the problem resolved, and I don't understand why it worked, so any explanation on this will be useful. I'm documenting this so anyone else who faces this problem can benefit. What I was doing is, setting the DISPLAY environment variable in MobaXterm like this: $ export DISPLAY=<my_windows_ip>:0.0 Apparently this is unnecessary according to ...

The following relates to the most recent version of VirtualBox at the time of writing (4.3). I can't speak for older versions. A SAV file is made up of units. If you open your SAV file in a hex editor you can navigate through the units by searching for the following hex string: 0A 55 6E 69 74 0A 00 00 This is the word Unit with some other characters ...

The issue was caused by Selinux blocking the Nginx server from accessing the shared folder. I just disabled SElinux as this is a development box rather then creating a rule to allow Nginx to access the files.

I am running a Windows 7 box with VB running an insider view of Windows 10 and I was getting the same message, what I needed to do was go into settings>system and under pointing device change it from ps2 mouse to usb tablet and I was able to work in and out of the VM without holding down the home key. took a bit of digging, but it works.

As MariusMatutiae mentioned, you must switch the Virtual Network from NAT to Bridged. This will allow the VM to interact with other "real" devices on the network.

are you doing your curl localhost from within vagrant environment or your main machine? If you're doing it from your main machine, your port forwarding might not be enabled or your guest port 80 (vagrant) is mapped to some other port on host (i.e. 8080). If that's the case, you'll need to do curl localhost:8080 Also, make sure that your nginx is in fact ...

There's a bug in Vagrant that's been fixed, but is yet unreleased that allows vagrant to fail fast and properly output the error. Until then double check that you can login to the box using the username and password which vagrant is using, by default the username and password are both "vagrant". Changing the windows password is a common cause of this ...

The short answer is that yes, you should Sysprep the environments before creating multiple copies that will be used in the same environment. There are two ways I would proceed. The first is to configure a base VM, create a snapshot, and Sysprep it, then create a clone of that VM. The original VM would never be boot, just cloned whenever you wanted a new ...

I have the same version of VirtualBox (4.3.18) on Windows, and it too doesn't detect the new version(s), even though they've been out for over a month. Either the updater in this version is just busted, or Oracle just hasn't updated the repository that holds the versions the updater checks, or they changed its location for newer versions, or ??? To know ...

You could try to recover the files using a bootable CD from https://www.runtime.org/data-recovery-live-cd.htm Boot the CD within Virtualbox and follow the instructions on the website. Extra: In all languages it is recommended to always perform input validation. This is not different when using bash scripting. I have seen servers been compromised because ...

You should change your VirtualBox host key to not conflict with your workspace switching keys. You can do this by opening the VirtualBox Preference window, select "Input" and change the host key. (Reference: http://helpdeskgeek.com/virtualization/change-the-host-key-in-virtualbox/)

vboxmanage list vms Dos not (anymore?) tells if the vm is runing or not. It list also not running ones. vboxmanage showvminfo "your_vm_name" | grep -c "running (since" Will returns 1 if it's running, or 0 if not.

Have you tried making VMDK file that connects to phisical usb drive? It is very simple: VBoxManage internalcommands createrawvmdk -filename /path/to/file.vmdk -rawdisk /dev/sda where: /dev/sda is your usb drive. Then connect this file.vmdk to your virtual machine. It will work like an alias to usb drive. For more details check: ...

I found a feature in my BIOS settings under "security" which supposedly protects the computer from memory overflow errors.. However, I tried to disable this feature and now I don't seem to get any strange errors anymore and furthermore does the virtual machine run much much much faster.. In my attempts to solve the problem, I also tried upgrading ...

I presume you are using Linux as your main OS. Insert your USB, do not mount it, then as sudo issue the following command: dd if=/dev/sdb of=/path/to/my/UbuntuImage.iso Make sure you've got the right device: I assumed sdb above, do not make a mistake, it could be dangerous. Now create a new VirtualBox VM, with a disk which is at least as large as ...

First of all check whether you are able to ping your proxy server using Ubuntu in your virtual box. the command for this is : ping <address_of_the_proxy_server> If you are able to ping the proxy-server, now you can check whether your credentials are correctly set or not.Open the terminal and run env. A lot of information will appear on the screen. ...

As far as I know, what you want is not possible. I have a fair bit of experience with this kind of set-up and the nearest solution would be to dual boot mint/windows, have a shared folder for your vm residing in a separate(windows readable) partition. That way your data is accessible everywhere but the core installation of each windows is different. As ...

You can use bridged networking in your VM, and then you got another MAC address, or you can easily generate a different one.

I worked out how to do it so thought it worth posting for others. Remove all protocols on the physical host NIC properties (TCP4, TCP6 etc...) except the "VM Bridge Protocol" Set the VM NIC to "Bridged" in VirtualBox Network Properties VM now has full access to the physical NIC whilst the Physical Host has none. Physical Host will route all traffic via ...

The answer should be complex, I hope not too much complicate, but more you read down more it is complex; for a large quantity of data I can suggest you the number 1 or the numbers 5 and 6: If you will not use at the same time both the virtual machines you can mount the same virtual disk to each of them: no need to copy. You can copy few (or more) lines or ...

You also have the option to start the machine via a desktop link, and then customizing the icon via right-click -> Properties. When you start the VM using this link, the custom icon will also appear in the task bar. This is very useful if you are running several VM's at the same time, and you want to distinguish them in the task bar.

You need to have the VB guest additions installed on the guest as well as the settings you mention.

There isn't really a way to do this. All nics on the virtual machine are actually virtual nics with vmware drivers. The host machine MUST have access to both network cards, otherwise the virtual drivers will fail to function. Typically the IP address assignment is a function of the host operating system as well. Even IP rules won't work as if the ...

It turned out the problem was that "-march=native" resulted in the compiled system binaries containing SSE4 and AVX instructions, which are not supported by the version of VirtualBox I was using. Explicitly disabling those in my compiler flags and recompiling allowed the system to boot properly under VirtualBox.

It's simple, use the following VBoxManage command to get VirtualBox to boot from an external USB. cd %programfiles%\oracle\virtualbox VBoxManage internalcommands createrawvmdk -filename "%USERPROFILE%"\desktop\usb.vmdk -rawdisk \\.\PhysicalDrive# Where # is the disk drive number of the USB.

In the Virtualbox host, open settings -> ports -> USB the second icon on the right with the small plus sign. Select the USB device you want to use. Disconnect and reconnect the device.

Having combed through many forum and discussion threads I ended up eventually solving the problem ... it seems to be a bug with the 4.3.10 version under (atleast) Ubuntu 14.04 which makes it impossible for the appropriate kernel modules to actual compile (didn't find it discussions originally though only found out checking logs) the solution seems to be to ...

Curiously, just tried the same thing with Kubuntu 14.04 (host) on Mint 17.1 (guest), and got the same error. The fix was to do this (as per this post): sudo ln -f -s /opt/VBoxGuestAdditions-4.3.10/lib/VBoxGuestAdditions/mount.vboxsf /sbin/mount.vboxsf Then manually add your user to the vboxsf group (as per dot point 2 in this answer): sudo usermod -a -G ...

Yes, use bridged adapter on the virtual machine, set it up so the main pc, second pc and VM are on the same workgroup connect to the same switch or router and connect to the VM using remote desktop connection. Simple as that! Make sure RDP is enabled in the virtual machine aswell. You will login with the admin credentials from the VM. Get the IP of the VM ...

Being that Windows 10 is not RTM yet there is no likely hood or guarantee that Virtual Box will successfully install. I read a few post on Virtual Box forums that there were some security change made in 4.3 so you might try running version 4.2 to see if that will install. Outside of that you are not likely going to get much response on trying to get a ...

There are at least three separate components at play here, each of which need to be configured correctly.

Of course it is. Install a legal copy of Mac OS onto VirtualBox, you can find here excellent instructions to do so. Make sure that the disk you are allocating to the VM is at least as large as the occupied part of your disk. Then install Guest Additions on the VM. This is a perfect time to make a full backup of your system, just in case anything goes ...

If you host is Linux, then you cannot use a Windows path. If your host is Windows, try with D:\ - it shouldn't make a difference tho. If you try to import a machine/appliance, then there is a known issue in older versions of VirtualBox - make sure yours is up to date.

I suppose your virtual network is configured for NAT. In the port forwarding rules just leave blank the two address fields. Test connecting to port 4022 of your host from another machine.

This is a known problem. MS fixed this 2 weeks ago, as far as I can remember. You can disable automatic update temporarily and tried it again in a few days. Or, you can install a 3rd party app that installs windows update from their app. I would suggest 360 Total Security. You can google it. They have a Patch Up feature that fetches, downloads and installs ...

Have you made sure that you have the port open in iptables? I am fairly certain that by default most/all ports are blocked. Here is a quick test. Check your current iptables settings with: sudo iptables -L I expect you will see it has no current rules, which means it will be denying connections. So as a test to verify it is the iptables, flush the ...

Long story short... you need to write your own init.d script to run on run-levels 0(halt) and/or 6(reboot) and perhaps run-level 1 (single-user-mode, typical for recovery situations). For example, in /etc/init.d/virtualbox, create something like this: #!/bin/sh ### BEGIN INIT INFO # Provides: virtualbox_start_and_stop # Required-Start: ...
