Some things should be reconfigurable without having to restart a VM. For example: serial console redirection, possibly networking, and certainly port forwarding for NAT cases, as well as adding/removing disks (where supported by the emulated hardware), USB, ...

Change History

Adding/removing disks is not supported by virtual hardware. This would require emulating plug-n-play USB hard disks.

Networking is now on-the-fly configurable, but not NAT ports. (Vbox 3.1)

USB is also dynamic now. Shared folders are dynamic too.

We must split this wish into smaller separate wishes.

  1. Dynamic reconfiguration for serial console redirection
  1. Dynamic reconfiguration for port forwarding for NAT cases
