FlexiNetwork: Cannot change network attachment
|Reported by:||Technologov||Owned by:|
Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
VBox 3.1.x provides a way to change network attachment on the fly, which I call "FlexiNetwork".
In some cases this feature does not work.
Host: Windows Vista, 32bit, VBox 3.1.2 with 3 NICs (2 Ethernet and 1 WiFi)
Guest: [none] Empty VM, 1 vNIC
Steps to reproduce: (sometimes reproducible)
- Start Empty VM (1 vNIC = NAT)
- Switch network attachment type from "NAT" to "Bridged"
- Choose the host's network adapter you wish to attach to
Actual Results: (sometimes) It automatically chooses the first host's adapter and user can't choose otherwise from the drop-down menu.
Expected results: It should ask the user which host's adaper he wanna use
