Can’t SSH into VirtualBox Machine

This video will show you how to SSH into a VirtualBox Machine. This video is using CentOS although the concepts should be much the same for other Linux Distros. This Linux Tutorial shows you what do to when you can’t SSH into VirtualBox Machine. First you will need to power off your VM. Next you will need to right click, settings, click network, select adopter 2 and enable VirtualBox host only adapter. Once done you will need to power on the machine. Next you will need to make sure that this new connection has an IP address. In CentOS this is done by creating a new network connection in the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts folder. We then configure this network have a DHCP IP address and restart the network connection. Once done we restart the network, and SSH in to our machine.

VirtualBox host only adaptor disappeared (Interface (‘VirtualBox Host-Only Ethernet Adapter’) is not a Host-Only Adapter interface (VERR_INTERNAL_ERROR) SOLVED

Hi there,

After recently updating Windows 10, none of my VMs in VirtualBox would power on. I kept receiving an error that read:

(Interface (‘VirtualBox Host-Only Ethernet Adapter’) is not a Host-Only Adapter interface (VERR_INTERNAL_ERROR) SOLVED

 

After looking around the settings of my Windows 10 machine I noticed that the host only adaptor was missing. To fix it I added a new adaptor by doing the following:

Step 1

I clicked file and then Host Network Manager

Step 2

In the screen that appears I then clicked Create, to create a new Host Only Network.

Step 3

I then right clicked on the VM i wanted to start and clicked settings.

Step 4

I then did the following:

  • Clicked on Network.
  • Selected the checkbox to enable Network adaptor.
  • Assigned the Host only adaptor I created.
  • I then clicked ok.

The VM then booted without issue.
