Hello,   I am proud to present: VirtualBox plugin for unRAID v5 and v6   The plugin installs both VirtualBox package and the VirtualBox Extension package (it does not ins

Looks like issue with 5.1.20 extension pack.  I see a brief question something like do I agree to these terms or whatever with a y/n? along the bottom of the GUI before a message saying install failed

So this is your first installation of the VirtualBox plugin?

 

Please post your syslog and VirtualBox configuration files in the plugin folder.

6.0 beta 4

 

Two issues:

 

1. When I "Save Below Configuration" it blanks out all the settings in the virtualbox config file, except for the symlink location, regardless of what settings I have on the webpage.

 

2.  I 'll restore the previous settings by editing the file manually, including upgrade on boot, start on array mount, etc, however after a system restart none of the settings are followed and according to the log it says these settings are disabled?  The plugin doesn't install on boot, and obviously nothing else happens either.  I have to manually install it from the webpage and start everything up.

 

Everything else works fine and I can run VMs without problems.  Just wish it would survive a restart as expected.

 

Still having these issues with 4.3.16.

I can't seem to connect to VB from my laptop.  I'm using remotebox on my laptop and entering in the IP address I used in the config settings and admin/admin and keep getting errors stating my creds and/or host are invalid. 

 

Help?

 

Okay, connected but the issue now is I can't figure out how to mount an ISO from within the VB GUI.  How do you do this?  When I click on the storage tab I don't have any options to choose other ISO's.

 

Okay took a while to figure all that stuff out above but I got it :).  Thing I can't seem to crack now is getting the guest window size bigger then 800/600.  I have guest additions installed and I can change the screen resolution on my ubuntu vm but the guest window won't resize.  How do you go about resizing that thing??

I haven't got the time to do the update now.

 

I have tried pHaZe's workaround for the gui and it works just fine.

 

Would it be possible to just repack for the new kernel? Or is there more to it than that?

 

Can anyone else help? This is the last update before upgrading to V6b12.

 

Thanks

Many versions back of VirtualBox and when there was no unRAID 6, I wrote this guide: http://vbox.a1aina.com/install.php

 

Most of the information specific links are out-dated and no longer available... if you just need an overview and can find newer versions of web servers and such, it "might" help you. If you need specific instructions and don't want to look into newer or different versions, avoid it.

 

Once the guide was good, but things kept changing and I was unable to dedicate the time to keep it up. I'm working lots of overtime at work and recently moved to a new place (still trying to get everything unpacked and settled in)... so I won't be able to do any updating in the foreseeable future.

Thanks for responding Lainie.

 

Regarding the plugin, I still use your origional plugin and with PhAzE giving us the update in the Go file I am able to get the GUI loaded. The problem I have is that there is a new Kernel with V6B12. Could you tell me how to unpack and repack for the new kernel?

Restarted the webserver as well as virtualbox plugin.

When I try to connect via browser I receive the following:

I am really not an expert and cant debug the problem so will need a hand to solve this.

What is also strange that virtualbox plugin is not creating a log file at all.

Please help.

Some comments on the above topic would be highly appreciated.

 

Had a similar problem some time back and fixed it by changing the IP for the vboxserver host ip to 127.0.0.1.. I also left the port on the standard 18083. Any changes from that yielded a similar problem. Let me know if it helps.

 

Cheers

Dear RivaSABB,

Thank you for your reply.

Unfortunately this didn't helped. My webserver is based on Mamp for OSX and is not installed on the Unraid machine but on my Mac.

Tried "one-thousand" combinations for the last few days and just can't get rid of this message.
