#14526 closed defect (fixed)

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

Reported by: Luiz Angelo Daros de Luca Owned by:
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.

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.
