Virtualbox - vboxnet0 error

Post questions specific to installation or configuration for the HPCC Systems platform

Thu Mar 12, 2020 3:18 pm Change Time Zone


I have installed Virtualbox and imported the HPCC Platform VM Image 64bit. However when I try to run it I get an error

Could not start the machine HPCCSystemsVM-amd64-7.6.30-1 because the following physical network interfaces were not found:

vboxnet0 (adapter 2)
You can either change the machine's network settings or stop the machine.

My OS is Windows 10. As shown on the tutorial videos, the platform settings for the Network->Adapter 2 are "Attached to: Host-only Adapter" and "Name: VirtualBox Host-Only Ethernet Adapter".

I have tried a few solutions I found through google, but no luck. Any help would be very much appreciated.

Thank you.

I have had this experience also when I made the mistake of upgrading to VirtualBox 6.0 from the 5.2 I had been using. I "cured" it by uninstalling and going back to the 5.2 version.

You can create vboxnet0 or vboxnet1 from VirtualBox -> File -> Host Network Manager
Make sure "DHCP Server" is enabled
