Ticket #5797 (new defect)
Frequent network stoppages/poor performance on VBox 3.1 running pkg image-update in guest
|Reported by:||rlk||Owned by:|
Running VirtualBox 3.1.0/3.1.2 on OpenSUSE 11.1 (64 bit) with OpenSolaris (b126 or b128) guest.
If I run "pkg image-update -v" in the guest to upgrade to build 129, I get frequent errors as below. I'm using NAT networking. I've tried a variety of settings in the guest (enable/disable VT-x, for example) with no change in results. I've tried both the opensolaris.org and Sun internal repositories with the same result. What I observe is that package retrieval makes decent forward progress for a minute or so, and then hangs for quite a while with no network activity showing, then it makes more progress for a bit, and eventually the image update times out as below.
Downgrading to VirtualBox 3.0.12 fixed this. I then reinstalled 3.1.2 and it started happening again.
