Ticket #7057 (closed defect: fixed)
disconnected host network on boot - removing vbox modules fixes the issue
|Reported by:||medigeek||Owned by:|
I am not sure if this is a duplicate, sorry if it is.
Host (my physical machine) has disconnected network (ethernet) during boot sometimes. If I reboot the machine, the networking is fine.
- It seems random, does not happen always...
- I tried to remove and reload r8169, but didn't help. The problem seems to disappear once I rmmod vbox-related kernel modules.
- dmesg and several other "network debug" commands, showing the state of the network
- commands (modprobe -r) I used to remove vbox-related kernel modules and reload my ethernet kernel module (r8169)
I have noticed that there is a new version (3.2.4-62467), I will see if it happens with that install as well.
Using VirtualBox 3.2.4:
