I am attempting to create several hostonlyif's for my pfSense VM to have multiple subnets and the command gives the following error.

The host OS is Ubuntu Server 10.04.1 LTS

pa-dss@pa-dss:~$ VBoxManage hostonlyif ipconfig vboxnet1 --ip --netmask

Oracle VM VirtualBox Command Line Management Interface Version 3.2.10 (C) 2005-2010 Oracle Corporation All rights reserved.

The commands for creating and removing of host-only interfaces will become available in the next maintenance release. The syntax for creating new host-only interfaces will be

VBoxManage hostonlyif create

The above command prints out the name of new interface. Then the interface can be configured with

VBoxManage hostonlyif ipconfig
