VyOS inside virtualbox for testing
Closed, InvalidPublicBUG



i was building an VyOS testsystem on my desktop inside virtualbox 6.0.
I added one more network card as needed and connect only this card via bridge with my lan for doing configuration.
All other cards are not connected in virtualbox.

If I boot the virtualbox vm I got

e1000 0000:00:03.0 eth0 Reset adapter
e1000 0000:00:03.0 eth0 Detected Tx Unit Hang

for all adapters.

Hi @rherold , these messages are verbose debug messages, change to virtio-net or to a different emulated driver to have them disappear. In general I recommend to use the virtio one which has a better performance too compared to emulated ones, plus less complex code. (

Thx for the feedback indeed it runs much better with the virtio-net driver. Bit the e1000 is the default if you choose Debian as OS in Virtualbox.
VyOS is not available in Virtualbox as OS Template. I think we should try to get an own template with nice defaults into Virtualbox. Should I open a case
in Virtualbox for it? Do we have a list of settings that would be optimal for an VyOS vm?
