VirtualBox: Import on different platform

VirtualBox behaves almost the same on different OSes but the default network name for host-only network is different.

The picture below is from Windows. On Linux, it will be named "vboxnet0" by default.

This causes a problem on cross-platform export/import and it's already reported.

#7067 (VERRINTERNALERROR: Inexistent host networking interface, named 'vboxnet0') – Oracle VM VirtualBox

VERR_INTERNAL_ERROR: Inexistent host networking interface, named 'vboxnet0'

There are at least 2 workarounds.

  1. Open the imported VM in VBox GUI and pick correct network.
  2. Run CUI command like below. This one is for Windows.
    VBoxManage.exe modifyvm node1_1  --hostonlyadapter1 "VirtualBox Host-Only Ethernet Adapter"
