bridge, time settings failure

Postby promeneur » 25. Jun 2022, 10:20

Virtualbox 6.1

Guest : openSUSE Tumbleweed

VM :

- android-x86 7.1-r5 ( https://www.android-x86.org )
- OS : Linux 2.6/3.x/4.x (64 bit)
- network : "Bridge access"

When launching the VM, at the end of the process we can see the VM connecting to the network and the time is 7 h 55. At the end of the connection process, the time is not set and is still 7 h 55 instead of 9 h 55. The time is never set during the whole day. We can see that connecting is very long.

If I select "NAT" instead of "Bridge access" then no problem. We can see that connecting is short.

If I use QEMU to create the same VM then no problem. QEMU uses the host bridge.

VirtualBox has no role to play in wall clock time setting in a guest OS taken from a network time server. Especially so when the guest OS is unsupported.

The guest evidently has internet access. For everything else, check with the guest OS config. I would start by checking the time zone and time server config, and confirm that Internet access works.

I found the problem.

The DHCP v6 server of my FAI is very slow to give an IP v6 configuration (gateway, DNSs, ip address)

I enabled the DHCP v6 server of my internet box, then no more problem.
