Solaris host - Linux Guest VBox Crashing?

Postby vbox_pack » 5. Mar 2012, 19:34

I'm not sure what's going on here. We've had this VBox VM running in a lab environment for quite a while, but apparently it's been dropping itself into Powered Off state seemingly at random. It wasn't being monitored by anything and the only reason we realized it was down was due to lack of ssh ability to it.
Host: Solaris 10u8 running on a Sun/Whoracle X4170
Guest: Fedora/Redhat clone Linux
IIRC it's gone down like this before and they just fired it right back up without any further investigation. I reviewed the syslogs on the Solaris host and it doesn't look like anyone manually powered this VM off. Is there anything specific I should be looking for on this thing?

The VBox version:
# VBoxManage -v

# ps -eaf |grep [V]Box
root 16216 12359 0 Mar 01 ? 0:00 /opt/VirtualBox/amd64/VBoxSVC --pipe 8 --auto-shutdown

# VBoxManage showvminfo "Fedora-12-x86" |grep State
State: powered off (since 2012-03-01T20:25:35.000000000)

I looked in the vbox.log and didn't notice anything, but I'm not entirely sure what I'm looking for.
