Virtualbox Bridged Network Issues on 10.9 Beta (Mavericks)

Postby McJim2k » 16. Jun 2013, 15:53

Wondering if anyone else has tried running Virtualbox on OS X 10.9 Beta. I have Mavericks installed on a 2012 Mac Mini with the latest version of Oracle's VirtualBox (4.2.12 r84980).

I have an Ubuntu 64 bit virtual machine - though the OS doesn't seem to matter as I tried running a previously working Windows VM or any new installation and it gave the same error before the OS could even boot. When one of the guest network devices has Bridged selected, the following error message appears upon start up:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
Failed to open a session for the virtual machine testing.
Failed to open/create the internal network 'HostInterfaceNetworking-en0' (VERR_SUPDRV_COMPONENT_NOT_FOUND).
Failed to attach the network LUN (VERR_SUPDRV_COMPONENT_NOT_FOUND).

Result Code:    NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
Component:    Console
Interface:    IConsole {db7ab4ca-2a3f-4183-9243-c1208da92392}


A similar error occurs when attempting to configure a Host Only Network. If I attempt to configure the host Networking options and add a Host-only Network I receive the following error:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
Failed to create the host-only network interface.
VBoxNetAdpCtl: Error while adding new interface: failed to open /dev/vboxnetctl: No such file or directory

Result Code:    NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
Component:    HostNetworkInterface
Interface:    IHostNetworkInterface {87a4153d-6889-4dd6-9654-2e9ff0ae8dec}


On the plus side, it appears that NAT and Internal Network options work fine - though I haven't done much testing with Internal Network. With NAT selected, the VM boots without errors and is able to connect to the internet and operate just fine; however, I am unable to connect locally to the VM. Which is why Bridged or Host-only would be nice to have.

I've made a similar post in the Mac Dev forums and will report back any information received there.

looks as if we will be having multiple mavericks postings.

Would be preferable to have one <sigh>

So I finally attempted to just reinstall VirtualBox (4.2.12 r84980) from a fresh download from the VB website ... it's working just fine now. Both Bridged networking and Host Only networking are working as they should with no errors. Looks like something just got deleted during the upgrade process to 10.9.

So anyone with this same issue, just reinstall, worked for me.

Not sure why one needs to install VirtualBox twice but it seems to be the case. I didn't upgrade to 10.9. I did a fresh install. Then installed 4.2.14. Had the bridged network problem. Reinstalled 4.2.14 and now everything is fine.

Yes, I confirm this.

You need to re-install the last version of Virtual Box AGAIN to solve this problem.

I upgraded Mavericks for the last developer version, and Virtual Box stopped working again, showing the same error.
I re-installed it again, and it works now.

So, if you upgrade Mavericks, you MUST REINSTALL VIRTUAL BOX to solve this error.

Hopefully when Mavericks is released this problem will already be addressed.

Thanks to all for help me.

FYI,

I just recover my ooold Oracle Password to post this!

Apple may have change something in the network interfaces naming method in Mac OS X Mavericks!

Because the problem reappears when you restart the OS!

After every restart, VirtualBox lost references to the available network interfaces, so you have to re-install VirtualBox! again and again after each reboot.

So we will have to wait until Oracle! fix VirtualBox to use the new method that Apple is using in the OS, or wait until the release of the Mac OS Mavericks! (hopping Apple fixes this or maybe is new feature?)

Thanks,

Well I just upgraded to Mavericks (the production release) and the issue with /etc/vboxnetctl going missing is still present.

Like mentioned, I just re-installed the latest vbox kit, and everything is back to normal.

I have not tried rebooting though, so I don't know if the setting survives a reboot. Then again I rarely reboot my Macbook anyway.

Does not survive reboot with production Mavericks, problem returns, must reinstall VBox (again). Oracle needs to fix.

In the release notes, Oracle claims to have fixed it, but they most certainly did not. Maybe it works on a clean install of Mavericks (as opposed to an upgrade from Mountain Lion), I dunno. What I do know is that:
1. The system, at times, will have an extra VirtualBox icon in the launcher bar that will not disappear (even after 'ps ax|grep -i box' followed by 'kill -9' to all process IDs) and the system will not shut down without a hard power-off
2. On every reboot, VirtualBox has to be reinstalled due to missing Host-only Networks.

Version 4.3.0 r89960

When Virtualbox was installed, how was Security set up?

Allow applications downloaded from Anywhere

Until VirtualBox is updated, on Mavericks it wont work otherwise

VB stopped working after I upgraded to full version of 10.9 Mavericks.

Reinstalling VB 4.3.0 r89960 and the Ext Pack fixed the issue.

I didn't need to "Allow applications downloaded from Anywhere", I just right-click "open" on the VirtualBox application.
