VirtualBox Host-Only error

  • #24748
    Damian Holroyd


    I’ve installed the sandbox on oracle virtualbox on a windwos 7 machine, and when I attempt to start the virtual machine I get the following error message:

    failed to open/create the internal network ‘HostInterfaceNetworkings-VirtualBox Host-Only Ethernet Adapter’

    Failed to attach the network LUN

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

    Is anyone able to shed any light on what the issue might be?

    Hi Damian,
    What version of vritual box are you using? Can you check your host only adapter settings in virtualbox preferences to verify there is a network for host only adapter?
