Failed to open/create the internal network (VERR_INTNET_FLT_IF_NOT_FOUND)

16 Jan

Error Message :

VBoxManage: error: Failed to open/create the internal network ‘HostInterfaceNetworking-Atheros AR8151 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller’ (you might need to modprobe vboxnetflt to make it accessible) (VERR_INTNET_FLT_IF_NOT_FOUND).

VBoxManage: error: Failed to attach the network LUN (VERR_INTNET_FLT_IF_NOT_FOUND).

VBoxManage: error: Unknown error creating VM (VERR_INTNET_FLT_IF_NOT_FOUND)

VBoxManage: error: Details: code NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005), component Console, interface IConsole, callee

Solution :

First, you need to check the Virtual Machine Information by run this script :

#VBoxManage showvminfo VM_name

You’ll get description about your VM. Let’s focused on the information about NIC (Network Interface Controller).

Then, try to run this script below to know

# dmesg | grep eth0

Then, reassign the interfaces (NIC) :

#VBoxManage modifyvm VM_name –bridgeadapter1 eth0

#VBoxManage showvminfo VM_name

#VBoxManage startvm VM_name –type headless

It works for me !!!! Good luck

    I have been browsing on-line greater than three hours lately, but I never discovered any fascinating article like yours. It’s pretty price sufficient for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the web shall be much more helpful than ever before. “Learn to see in another’s calamity the ills which you should avoid.” by Publilius Syrus.

    Thanks for this post. This really worked. It will be more useful to a newcomer to virtual box, like me, if you can add some explanation as to what went wrong and what exactly these commands fixed. In any case, this is a great useful post.

      SamV, thanks for comment. Actually, I am newcomer too in virtual box. My friend told me that solution, so I share it here because I didn’t find the best solution from the internet to fix this problem. Glad to help you.

    How do you run the script?

      You have to first open a Command window (aka Console window), change to the VirtualBox program folder, and run the command from there

    what do you think about this?

    VBoxManage createvm –name “CentOS6.3” –ostype RedHat_64 –register
    VBoxManage modifyvm “CentOS6.3” –memory 1024 –acpi on –boot1 dvd –nic1 bridged –bridgeadapter1 eth1
    VBoxManage createhd –filename “CentOS6.3.vdi” –size 3000
    VBoxManage storagectl “Windows XP” –name “IDE Controller”
    VBoxManage storagectl “CentOS6.3” –name “IDE Controller” –add ide –controller PIIX4
    VBoxManage storageattach “CentOS6.3” –storagectl “IDE Controller” –port 0 –device 0 –type hdd –medium “CentOS6.3.vdi”
    VBoxManage storageattach “CentOS6.3” –storagectl “IDE Controller” –port 0 –device 1 –type dvddrive –medium /home/bubba/CentOS_6.3_Final.iso

    tried this as well

    bubba@sc430:~$ VBoxManage modifyvm “CentOS6.3” –memory 1024 –acpi on –boot1 dvd –nic1 bridged –bridgeadapter1 eth0
    bubba@sc430:~$ VBoxManage startvm “CentOS6.3” –type headless
    Waiting for VM “CentOS6.3” to power on…

    Thank you for this diagnosis of the problem, and for your solution. It works.

    In my case, and even easier approach was to use the VirtualBox GUI to view the “Settings” for the VM and within the “Network” section to pick the correct host adapter for the VM’s Adapter 1. (My problem had arisen when I replaced my motherboard, which changed my host adapter from ’em1′ to ‘p4p1’, and this solved the problem).

    Thank you, it worked well for me, except that I could not copy and paste this command:
    “VBoxManage modifyvm VM_name –bridgeadapter1 eth0”
    I had to change it to:
    “VBoxManage modifyvm VM_name –bridgeadapter1 eth0”
    Than it worked fine. I can’t remenber, when I found a solution so fast 😉

    Brilliant! Just a small note – on the website the two hyphens before bridgeadapter have merged. I needed to delete that and then put in two hyphens. I think that is what fee is trying to say, but it happened to his comment too!
