Troubleshooting

Oracle VirtualBox

Vboxnet0 error

When starting the virtual machine, an error like this can occur:

VirtualBox error: vboxnet0

This means that you have no Host-only network adapter vboxnet0 created in your VirtualBox preferences.
To create it, click File -> Preferences. Choose Network and add a host-only network by clicking on the green
plus sign on the right side of the window. Click OK.
You shound now be able to start the virtual machine.

VMware Player

OVF specification warning

Starting virtual machine for the first time in VMware Player can invoke this window:

VMware Player warning: relax.

Just click Retry to ignore the warning and the virtual machine should run normally.
Optionally, check the 'Never show this hint again' checkbox to ignore any future warnings like this.

OVF descriptor warning

This error can appear on a Ubuntu/Debian OS:

VMware Player OVF descriptor error.

If this error occurs, you must convert a downloaded .ova file to .vmx file and then try to open the .vmx image.
The conversion should be done with already installed ovftool using --lax option for relaxing OVF specifications:

ovftool --lax IMUNES-FreeBSD-9.2-RELEASE.ova IMUNES-FreeBSD-9.2-RELEASE.vmx

IDE device error

Sometimes VMware mixes CD-ROM and Hard Disk master/slave configuration and you get this error:

VMware Player IDE device error.

To fix this error, select the virtual machine in VMware Player and click Edit virtual machine settings.
In the Hardware tab, look for the Hard Disk (IDE) and CD/DVD (IDE) devices. Select each of the devices and click Advanced....
Make sure your Virtual Device Node is set to the same IDE device for both CD/DVD and Hard Disk: either IDE 0: or IDE 1:.

Example configuration:
CD/DVD - IDE 0:0
Hard Disk - IDE 0:1
