I have just installed Oracle VMBox version 4.2.6 & Ubuntu 12.04.

Am trying to use Bridge network connection but for some reasons it is giving me error as:

Invalid settings detected


enter image description here

Unfortunately even after a host reboot I cant see any adapter name in the dropdown for "Name". Are there any settings need to be done for that as well?


when I tried executing this command :

 sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup

Result :

 sudo: /etc/init.d/vboxdrv: command not found

If the command /etc/init.d/vboxdrv doesn't exist, try to reinstall virtualbox. – xkill Feb 12 '13 at 7:12
Did you already try a reinstallation? – Eric Carvalho Feb 24 '13 at 23:51
@EricCarvalho : Nope any suggestions? – user1042031 Feb 25 '13 at 12:27
Just to make things clear: you're using VirtualBox to run a Ubuntu 12.04 virtual machine on a Windows host, right? – Eric Carvalho Feb 25 '13 at 12:37
Yes true....... – user1042031 Feb 25 '13 at 12:54

I have seen that on several occasions, every time it was some failed module.

On a command line type sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup and watch the output for error messages. If there are no errors that should get you going, if there are any please post them into your question.
