Ticket #3807 (closed defect: invalid)
imported Linux VM on Vista host with no eth0 interface but eth1 : networking doesn't load
|Reported by:||openkeywords||Owned by:|
I had a VM created with VB 2.1.4 on Vista (laptop) and running Ubuntu 8.04. I upgraded to VB 2.2 and upgraded the VM. I exported the VM to move it to another Vista machine (desktop) (with a different host network card). Once imported, the VM would start but the initial bridge networking configuration couldn't work. Changing the network cards in the VB GUI didn't change any thing. ifconfig -a listed network interfaces that all were down by default, and no eth0.
Since /etc/network/interfaces configured only eth0, I kept having no network configured in the guest. After running "dhclient eth1" I was able to recover the bridge network connectivity since eth1 was my first network interface.
However, this is strange that no eth0 gets loaded by the guest OS.
