failed to save host network interface

Postby DPowell » 25. Jul 2018, 20:48

My problem is I’m not able to set an ethernet adaptor in the host network manager. When I select "configure automatically" and apply, I get a “failed to save host network interface” error.
Callee RC:
NS_ERROR_NOT_IMPLEMENTED (0x80004001)

I have the latest version of VB as of 7/25/18.

I'm using Mac OS High Sierra

For future references you should post the exact version, for both VirtualBox and OSX. Can you describe the exact steps?

A bit late with this but I can describe problem.
mac 10.13.6 high Sierra
vbox 5.2.6 r120293
In vbox manager go to global tools - host network manager
select vboxnet1 and properties. Click 'configure adapter automatically' radio button and apply.
Same error as DPowell gets, both the msg box and the RC code.
Confirmed that dhcp enabled and the dhcp server config was valid.
The interface works fine when 'configure adapter manually' is set.

That's a relatively old version. Can you uninstall that and install the latest and greatest? That would be 5.2.18 as of this writing.

Having said that, I was able to reproduce the report with 5.2.6, 5.2.18, the test 5.2.x build 5.2.19 r125384, as well as the 5.2.97 r125396 development snapshot.
Failed to save host network interface parameter.
Callee RC: NS_ERROR_NOT_IMPLEMENTED (0x80004001)

"Not implemented" is not that grave of an error, it simply means that they haven't gotten around to implementing the necessary action (I guess).

I tried the same action on a Win10-1607, 64-bit (10.0.14393), and on a Ubuntu 16.04, 32-bit (4.4.0-87-generic). On Windows, that "Configure Adapter Automatically" works. On the Ubuntu one, it failed with the same error as in OSX.

I have the exact same problem with VBox 5.2.22 r126460.

Uh? Grave enough that it renders VirtualBox useless for my purposes.

@Reinderien
I believe you already have your own thread dealing with the issue, no? Let's stick there...

I have the same problem, I am trying to figure out how to get my vm to connect to file shares on my network, and tried the host adaptor option. but when I set DHCP to automatic, it comes up with the error. I am running Ubuntu 18.04 with virualbox 6.0.10

What error? The same error? Other?

I take it that this is your Host you're referring to, and that the Guest doesn't matter?

What's the network configuration of the Host (ifconfig -a), what's your Guest, and what is the Guest's configuration.

@Hasan: please start your own topic, do not hijack someone else's from years ago. Describe the problem and provide a zipped VM log, if you have ever managed to run the VM (the log answers a lot of questions about your setup). Also please reduce your images to 50% as we really don't need to see dialog boxes in 4K, that would also allow you to use png instead of jpeg.
