Solaris + SunRay does not allow several bridged VMs???

Reported by: kebabbert Owned by:

Version: VirtualBox 4.1.0 Keywords: Bridged NAT
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Solaris

Description

I use Solaris 11 Express and have installed SunRay server v5.2. SunRay server allows thin clients connections to the Solaris PC, or to the Linux PC.

When I start up a bridged VM on the Solaris PC, I can not startup another bridged VM on the SunRay client. Only one VM can be bridged, the rest of the VMs must be NAT. I would like to start several VMs as bridged. Is this a Solaris/SunRay bug?

To duplicate this problem: Install SunRay server (downloadable for free) and install it on Solaris. The SunRay server software is easy to install on Solaris 10, and tricky to install on Solaris 11 Express. There is a wiki that shows how to install on S11E, or consult the SunRay mail list.

On my Solaris PC, I can startup several bridged VMs. After that I try to startup another bridged VM on the SunRay client - this is not possible. Or vice versa, if the SunRay client is running a bridged VM, then I can not startup a bridged VM on my Solaris PC.

SunRay server is downloadable for free, for Linux. There is a SunRay soft client downloadable for free from Oracle. The soft client exists for Windows/Mac/iPad. This means you dont have to grab SunRay client as a hardware, just download the client as a software instead.

This is the error message I get, when I try to startup another bridged VM on my SunRay client:

Failed to open a session for the virtual machine WinXP_SP3

Failed to open/create the internal network 'Host InterfaceNetworking-e1000g0 - Intel PRO/1000 Gigabig Ethernet' (VERR_PERMISSION_DENIED)

Details: Result Code: NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005) Component: Console Interface: IConsole {1968b7d3-....cb7c913317bb}

To communicate with me, send me PM on my nick: "Kebabbert". I dont know which VBox.log I should attach. The one on the Solaris PC, or for the SunRay client?

I think you hit a known caveat of the Solaris bridged networking. From chapter 6 of the manual:

  • A VNIC cannot be shared between multiple guest network interfaces, i.e. each guest network interface must have its own, exclusive VNIC.

That's easy enough to overcome by creating multiple vnics. If you do not use aggregates, you can even use the templates.
