Details needed - did you move all VM configuration between those machines ? I mean VM machine configuration files between these two host machines too ? I'm asking because I'm not sure how cloud services do that as I doubt each machine has the same configuration and IDs for hardware components. Also, I remember having imaging VM machine in previous job, that ...

You most likely have a corrupted download. 7.1 GB is a large file, this is why network install was invented in the first place. I downloaded it via torrent. Here is the head of my vbox installation log, a very basic install on my experimental server. The entire log is too large to post, but if your install is crashing at the very beginning your log is going ...

This will work with WinXP and (probably) won't with Windows 7. I need to run Internet Explorer to access bank information and run this from a VM. I have a copy of that on my server, in case I have broken my workstation setup. The workstation and server used to have the same motherboard and (AMD) processor (although at different speeds) and things worked ...

All i did to fix this problem is followed the suggestion by guest additions installer: The headers for the current running kernel were not found. If the following module compilation fails then this could be the reason. The missing package can be probably installed with yum install kernel-uek-devel-2.6.39-400.215.10.el6uek.i686 After that i just retried ...

I finally solved the problem, so I wanted to share the steps I took to fix it. The issue that I was stuck on was that the VirtualBox video settings were limiting me to 1080p or less, so I had to run the following command in my host OS (Windows 7). Do this while the VM is offline. > VBoxManage setextradata "Web Dev" CustomVideoMode1 2560x1440x32 I ...

Either (additionally) export that subdirectory in VirtualBox and mount it the same way, or mount the main folder to a temporary mount point and use a bind mount to mount the subdirectory to the actual place: mount -t vboxsf vm_shared /mnt mount --bind /mnt/subdir ~/shared/

From the VirtualBox manual: 12.4.1. Linux guests may cause a high CPU load Some Linux guests may cause a high CPU load even if the guest system appears to be idle. This can be caused by a high timer frequency of the guest kernel. Some Linux distributions, for example Fedora, ship a Linux kernel configured for a timer frequency of 1000Hz. We ...

You can set up a virtual machine and give it (almost) whatever IP address you want, but it won't help you at all. 10.x.x.x and 192.168.x.x are both ranges of private addresses. These addresses are only used inside an organization, they are not routed on the Internet. Amazon doesn't see your work machine as 10.x.x.x, it sees it as coming from some gateway ...

Go to Settings -> System -> Pointing Device and set to ps2 mouse. Be sure that machine is powered off to change settings.

But u can install virtual box in ur system and assign any static ip. it can done while installing os or after installation. Incase u choose to assign static ip during installation, go to network adapter setting to enter the static ip. or Incase of after ...

Virtualbox has a built-in DHCPserver, you have to disable it, and you have to statically assign address to your guest: #!/bin/sh VBoxManage hostonlyif ipconfig vboxnet0 --ip 192.168.1.5 --netmask 255.255.0.0 VBoxManage dhcpserver remove --ifname vboxnet0 VBoxManage dhcpserver remove --ifname vboxnet1 If i don't make mistake, you have to run twice, once by ...

What should I do? What did I do wrong? You created a unbootable iso. You should have read the README file which says: Boot from base1.img and follow the on-screen instructions to install the base system. That means you need to add a floppy controller to your VM and use the file named base1.img (actually "Base 01 (2.1a).img") as virtual medium instead ...

I had the same problems with different setup: Host OS: Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon 64-bit Guest OS: Centos 6.6 Virtualbox: Oracle VM VirtualBox Manager 4.3.10_Ubuntu Solution which worked for me: Install Virtualbox --> Devices, Insert Guest Additions CD image Code: Select all Expand view [root@centos6 ~]# cd /media/VBOXADDITIONS_4.3.10_93012/ ...

Seems you can also fix both abovementioned issues via an entry to /etc/fstab to explicitly mount the shared folder, after disabling automatic mounting via virtualbox. You need to pay attention to load the vboxsf kernel module early enough, and you should also mark it as "remote" filesystem for systemd, e.g. with the _netdev ( and probably also with nofail ...

use vidcontrol MODE_xxx For example to have a screen 1024x768x24, in the console : # vidcontrol MODE_280 To know which mode you can be interested in, in the console : # vidcontrol -i mode The left column gives you the number you have to put after MODE_

It's not possible unless you know the UUID of the disk in question. If you did, you would need to have the following in your Vagrantfile: Vagrant.configure("2") do |config| # ... (other config) config.vm.provider "virtualbox" do |vb| vb.customize ["modifyhd", "disk id", "--resize", "size in megabytes"] end end where "size in megabytes" is the ...

The symbolic link to /etc/selinux/config was missing. I removed the /etc/sysconfig/selinux file and created a symlink to /etc/selinux/config. I modified the file again to set selinux to permissive, and rebooted.
