Ticket #8140 (closed defect: duplicate)
Host-only network configuration prevents VM start
|Reported by:||noihex||Owned by:|
|Version:||VirtualBox 4.0.2||Keywords:||network hostonly persistent configuration|
|Host type:||Mac OS X|
Because of the bug reported in #6341, host-only networks beyond vboxnet0 are not persisted in the configuration. Since version 4.0.2, trying to start a VM that depends on one of the missing networks results in the machine not starting and the status being left as 'Aborted', with no indication as to the nature of the failure.
When a network is added to the configuration, that network's original settings are restored, and the machine can then be started.
