Host only network not persistent across vboxdrv reload on Linux => Fixed in SVN

Reported by: kalif Owned by:
Priority: major Component: network/hostif
Version: VirtualBox 3.1.6 Keywords: host only network vboxnet

Host type: Linux

Description

I've created a new interface vboxnet1, this interface is not persistent across reboot/vboxdrv reload If I add it again from the graphical console, every field is already set as i previously did; it seems that VirtualBox store the vboxnet1 configuration somewhere, but it doesn't create the interface automatically on startup.

  • Version changed from VirtualBox 3.1.4 to VirtualBox 3.1.6
  • Component changed from network to network/hostif

comment:5 Changed 4 years ago by Sm0k1n

Confirmed on VirtualBox 3.1.6 running on openSuse 11.2 2.6.31.12-0.1-default kernel.

Any host-only interfaces except the first one (vboxnet0) don't show up again after a restart of the service or the host. The interface settings persist in the VirtualBox.xml file.

Confirmed. Bug still not fixed in the upcoming release 3.1.8 but we hope to get a fix into 3.2.0.

comment:8 Changed 4 years ago by kalif

Found a little workaround for this bug: I added the line /usr/lib/virtualbox/VBoxNetAdpCtl add in the init scripts, one line for each adapter previously configured. In this way the devices are created at boot time.
