"ip link" always shows state UNKNOWN => Fixed in SVN

Reported by: luizluca Owned by:
Priority: major Component: network/hostif
Version: VirtualBox 5.0.2 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: Linux



Both host-only vboxnet in host machine and inside the VM shows link state as UNKNOWN:

5: vboxnet0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UNKNOWN mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1000
    link/ether 0a:00:27:00:00:00 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff

However, the connection is working just fine. The state UNKNOWN is breaking OpenSuSE KIWI image that waits for "state UP" before launching dhcp.

  • Host type changed from other to Linux
  • Component changed from other to network/hostif

comment:2 Changed 3 years ago by vushakov

  • Summary changed from "ip link" always shows state UNKNOWN to "ip link" always shows state UNKNOWN => Fixed in SVN

Should be fixed in the coming 5.0.8. Host-only interfaces will now report operstate UP only when there are any VMs (or VBoxNetDHCP) attached.

Please reopen if still relevant with VBox 5.0.8.
