After Installing Oracle Virtual Box and changing the network adapter to bridged mode cant access my server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi ,

    I have installed Oracle Virtual box on windows server 2008 r2 hosted on 1und1.de.

    Till installtion and setting up untun on virtualbox it was fine, but once i changed the adapater to bridged mode. I immediatly lost connectivity with my server and now cant access.

    It is now 2 days i cant access my server and neither ping it, also the website hosted on it is also down.

    The 1und1 has following 2 options

    1) using putty i can connect to server command prompt using administrator but cant run any gui application

    2) Server Rescue mode: where i get special environment to start, stop services, access registry and command prompt.

    Till now i have tried lot of setting to enable network connectivity but not able to success

    This is the result of Ipconfig /all

  • Hi,

    To uninstall a application by cmd, we can use wmic.

    To uninstall a application by cmd, please use the command below,

    • wmic
    • product get name
    • product where name="the name of application" call uninstall

    When prompted, input y to confirm that you wish to uninstall the application and press Return.

    Note: The success of this procedure depends on if the software supports it.

    I have tested this in my lab server. It works properly. Here is the screenshot of my lab,

    If it doesn't work, to get better help, you may ask the support of 1und1 for help.

  • Hi,

    According to the result of "ipconfig /all", the physical adapter dosen't appear.

    Please check if the physical network adapter works properly. We can verify this in Device Manager.

    To open Device Manager by using the Windows interface

    1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.

    2. Click Hardware and Sound.

    3. Click Device Manager.

    If the network adapter is working properly, please make sure that the Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4) has been checked in the properties of the physical network adapter.

    If issue persists, please try to uninstall the Oracle Virtual box.

    Best Regards.
