I can not run a program/script on my guest OS from my host OS.
I type the following code into a cmd prompt:
- Code: Select all Expand viewCollapse view
VBoxManage --nologo guestcontrol "Red Hat Linux" execute --image "/bin/ls" --username root --password 12345 --wait-exit --wait-stdout -- -l /usr
I get the following error:
VBoxManage: error: The guest execution service is not ready (yet).
When I check the log file on the VM I see the following "verr_not_found" -> Not sure what this means.
Host OS Windows XP SP3
Guest OS Red Hat Linust (RHEL) 5.7
VirtualBox 4.1.8 for Windows hosts
Guest Additions Installed (Verified because I can share a folder from Host OS to Guest OS no problems)
Guest OS Network is working with NAT.
I have the VM up when running the above command. I launched it using the GUI. Linux is running without any problems.
I can share files using the SHARED FOLDER option in guest additions. So i know guest additions are installed.
I do everything as "root"
I ran VBoxManage list runningvms and even used the UUID -> no luck
I don't have a Internet connection, the Host and Guest OS are on an isolated network.
I put in a bogus user name and I got the same error.
I hope I gave enough information. If not, ask. I appreciate any insight you can offer. I spent all of day #2 on this one issue
