Host type: Linux

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

Regardless of installing the extension pack, I can't get VRDE to work, the logs report:

VRDE: VirtualBox Remote Desktop Extension is not available.

ExtPack is installed:

# ls /opt/VirtualBox/ExtensionPacks/Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack/
darwin.amd64  ExtPack-license.html  ExtPack-license.txt  ExtPack.signature  linux.amd64  PXE-Intel.rom  solaris.x86  win.x86
darwin.x86    ExtPack-license.rtf   ExtPack.manifest     ExtPack.xml        linux.x86    solaris.amd64  win.amd64

That's Debian 6.0 with VBox installed from either packages or the .run script.

Please find the log file and .vbox file attached.

For some reason it required a reboot.

comment:2 Changed 3 years ago by frank

Can't reproduce. If I start a VM without the extension pack installed the VRDE server is indeed not usable. But then I terminate the VM, install the extension pack, restart the VM and this time the VM has the VRDE server enabled. Did you stop the VM after you installed the extension pack?

comment:3 Changed 3 years ago by Saviq

Yes I have restarted the vm, restarted vboxdrv and vboxweb-service to no avail. I had to reboot the host and now it's fine.

comment:4 Changed 3 years ago by frank

Hmm. The settings in your .vbox file show that VRDE is disabled (<RemoteDisplay enabled="false"...)

comment:5 Changed 3 years ago by Saviq

As soon as I rebooted, the "Remote Display" tab was available, without any other ingerence from me. So I suppose this setting is reset to false unless VRDP is available.

Absolutely the same is in VBox 4.2.14.

Please attach the complete VBox.log files from a 4.1.26 session as well as from a 4.2.14 session. My guess is that you mix the extension packs.

comment:9 Changed 10 months ago by Jaga

I have attached logs for the 4.1.26 session. For 4.2.14 will attach now.

I am not mixing extension packs, I have checked it several times.
