I had a problem with a hard drive becoming corrupted. So we had to attach a backed up copy of the hard drive and the vbox files. That all worked fine. But then we found that IE on the host can no longer locate web sites on the guest, particularly the SSRS report server web site. We had no problems before this event for the last three months. The network setting on the VM shows as "host Only adapter" as it should be, with "promiscuous mode" set to "allow all", and "cable connected" checked.
This was not a problem before we worked with the problem. In addition, we cannot use our Business Intelligence Development Studio on the the host to design and deploy reports to the the Report Server on the VM any more. This is a major issue.
Nothing I have found shows any incorrect setting in our setup (although the chapter in the "current" manual on host only adapter does not match the current version of VirtualBox).
Does anyone have a method by when I can proceed? POI: Windows 7 host; Windows Server 2003 guest; Host only adapter; Intel Pro/1000 MT Desktop (82540EM); Promiscuous mode allow all; cable connected Port forwarding
IPconfig on host shows IP Address 192.168.56.101 IPconfig on guest shows 192.168.56.102
NdisDeviceType key is not present in the registry. I read the post here https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=27924
and went to the recommended blogs as well as the MSDN page. I confess I was not able to understand what desired. The response by mpack referred to this post http://robboek.com/2008/12/18/vmware-un ... -2008-fix/
which referred to the setting of an registry setting that does not exist on my machine. The msdn reference http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library ... 85%29.aspx
talks about some INF file but does not specify which INF file.
So I am not clear on why this worked, why this stopped working and what am I supposed to do.
