#9186 closed defect (obsolete)

Virtual machine will not start when connected to vde switch

Reported by: Andrei Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 4.0.10

Description (last modified by aeichner)

Host systems: Ubuntu 10.10 the Maverick Meerkat, debian 6 squeeze. VDE version: vde2 2.2.3

VDE switch is created with the following commands

root@fc7~# vde_switch --daemon --sock /var/run/vde2/switch01.ctl --mgmt /var/run/vde2/switch01.mgmt

A virtual machine is being connected to the switch with the following:

root@fc7~# VBoxManage modifyvm vm4 --nic1 vde --nictype1 Am79C973 --vdenet1 /var/run/vde2/switch01.ctl

When starting VM I see this error:

VBoxManage: error: No error info VBoxManage: error: Details: code NS_ERROR_CALL_FAILED (0x800706be), component ProgressProxy, interface IProgress, callee

I also tried this command:

root@fc7~# VBoxManage modifyvm vm4 --nic1 vde --nictype1 Am79C973 --vdenet1 /var/run/vde2/switch01.ctl/ctl

with the same result

I remember that it definitely worked fine with previous version of Virtualbox (3.2.* or something).

Has anyone come across this?
