Ticket #4753 (new defect)
ost-only network adapters settings change after reinstall
|Reported by:||Nazgulled||Owned by:|
Every time I reinstall (mostly when updating to a new version) VirtualBox, my host-only network adapter settings are changed... I found out about this when the internet in the guests stopped working. The first time it took me a while to discover that the problem was on the changed settings, I never though they would be different for any reason.
The host-only settings for each adapter has two tabs, "Adapter" and "DHCP Server".
Since I have the DHCP Server disabled, I don't know if it happens to those settings. But for the Adapter, I change the IP and Network Mask to match my needs and every time I update (last time was 3.0.2 -> 3.0.4), those settings are reset to the default values and because of that, my network connection stops working in the guests because it can't find the Adapter IP I specified.
Don't you agree that any settings for custom configurations shouldn't be changed when the user re-installs or upgrades to a new version? I mean, I changed the settings for a reason, I'm not expecting them to change unless I explicitly change them.
