Why is my VirtualBox VM not starting properly?

I’ve just wasted quite a bit of time trying to figure out why one of my VirtualBox VMs wasn’t starting properly, so I thought I would share the experience here in case anyone else has a similar issue…

It all started because I decided to fire up an OL6 VM, that I hadn’t used for a little while. It started up fine and I figured I should probably patch the OS and the VirtualBox Guest Additions. The first thing I did was a “yum update” to bring it up to OL6.4 and the the latest UEK2. Once that was complete I did a reboot and that is where the issue started. The VM booted in the normal fashion, but then hung at this point.

Loving VirtualBox 4.2…

I’m loving VirtualBox 4.2.

I’ve been throwing some RAC, WebLogic and Cloud Control installations on it at home and it’s been coping just fine. I’m especially loving the grouping stuff. I’ve got quite a lot of VMs and scrolling down the list can get a little tiresome. Grouping them and collapsing the group is great!

So far I’ve only see one issue with the groups and I’ve not been able to repeat it. When I dragged one Windows VM (with 2 virtual disks) into a group, both virtual disks were physically moved into the new group sub-directory, but the interface “lost” one of the disks. I went into the Virtual Media Manager, deleted the reference to the “missing” disk, then added it by re-selecting the file from the file system. Everything then worked fine.

VirtualBox 4.2 Released

Hot on the heels of the 4.1.22 release comes Virtual Box 4.2. The downloads and changelog are in the usual places.

It’s a major release with a bunch of interesting new features, so I’ve got an interesting few days ahead while I get to grips with it. You can get an idea about what’s in it here.

Happy upgrading!
