vnohup VBoxHeadless -startvm windows7 < /dev/null > /dev/null 2>&1 &


Kernel panics occur every 10-15 hours or so, after the system reboots (see extract from /var/adm/messages). After reboot, Im not able to start the vm, "svcs -xv" reveals that VirtualBox Zone Access Service is in maintenance mode (see below).

I have to do a full power cycle (poweroff server and unplug) then reboot until it works again.

Any ideas? :cry:

running version 3.1.8 for 4 days now without problems. Reverting back seems to be the only way then.
