Discussions related to using VirtualBox on Solaris hosts.
I am trying to ssh to virtual box to turn on a virtual machine from another computer. The command I am using is VirtualBox –startvm [Machine name here] however every time I try I get Qt Warning: VirtualBox: cannot connect to X server. All I am trying to do is to boot a virtual machine from ssh. I do not need to be able to access or modify the virtual machine. I just want the machine that has VirtualBox on it to boot the Virtual Machine. Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

VBoxManage startvm <uuid>|<name> [--type gui|vrdp]
or VBoxHeadless -s
Check the manual for these commands.
