In the VirtualBox GUI window, its possible to configure multiple host only network adapters. But the configured adapaters are not read in next time you start the GUI interface.

  • File > Preferences > From VirtualBox Settings dialog (Network) > Click + to add another host only network adapter)
  • An option is available to configure, IPV4/IPV6 and DHCP server configuration.
  • After the configuration of second Virtualbox Host only network adapater is done, Click ok.
  • Settings are now saved. It can be seen that the adapter is written to VirtualBox.xml file.
  • Close virtual box GUI now.
  • Confirm that the newly created host only adapter is present in virtualbox.xml file from command line.
  • start the VirtualBox GUI again.
  • Choose ( File > Preferences > Network > puff ..... the second adapater is NOT listed. )
  • Choosing + to add the network adapter, does read all the settings from the virtualbox.xml, meaning, all the configuration values previously entered are available.
