I just updated a 11.2 server to 12.1.

Which VirtualBox version did you use on 11.2? Maybe newer versions do not
automatically create the host only network interface?

donb't remember, but your guess is likely

First, there are some dedicated VirtualBox mailing list:

I know, I will try if nothing here

Some googling told me:

this only made me notice that I didn't give a name to the network adapter. I did with

VBoxManage modifyvm s-r --hostonlyadapter1 vboxnet0

but still the error message:

VBoxHeadless -startvm s-r
Oracle VM VirtualBox Headless Interface 4.1.4_OSE
(C) 2008-2011 Oracle Corporation

Error: failed to start machine. Error message: Nonexistent host networking interface, name 'vboxnet0' (VERR_INTERNAL_ERROR)

I do not use YaST for this, however "ip a" shows any vboxnet interface on my

none here

You need the vboxnet networking interface running on your host for
host only networking interfaces in your guest.

I just wonder how to create it

What does "lsmod | grep vbox" say? Here, vboxnetadp and vboxnetflt are

lsmod | grep vbox
vboxpci 27050 0
vboxnetadp 13328 0
vboxnetflt 27588 0
vboxdrv 269262 3 vboxpci,vboxnetadp,vboxnetflt

I have the same at home (12.1) and there I have the vboxnet0 interface...

There is a command line interface for configuring your virtual machines
called vboxmanage, including network:

yes, and I have only this to work :-(

Does "vboxmanage list hostonlyifs" show any host only networling interfaces?

VBoxManage list hostonlyifs

long waiting, empty result

In the outout of "vboxmanage showvminfo<uid>|<name>" there are some lines
starting with "NIC". Can you find any trace of your "hostonly" networking

VBoxManage showvminfo s-r | grep NIC
NIC 1: MAC: 080027D93404, Attachment: Host-only Interface 'vboxnet0', Cable connected: on, Trace: off (file: none), Type: 82540EM, Reported speed: 0 Mbps, Boot priority: 0, Promisc Policy: deny

may be I forgot to install something or there is an other VBoxManage command to issue...
