I have installed a VBOX virtual machine with Ubuntu 18.04.03 LTS in which I want to use 2 network connections, a NAT and a Bridge ones.

Show when I enable this adapters and start Ubuntu virtual machine, I try to see all the network cards I have, using:

lshw -c network -businfo

With that, i see that I have 2 devices, enp0s3 and enp0s8, but when I use the ifconfig, only the enp0s3 is shown.

How can I enable the enp0s8? I have tried adding to

netplan 50-cloud-init.yml 

and executing sudo netplan apply

But nothing changes for me


  • > netplan 50-cloud-init.yml Is this a typo? Note that the file that is precreated on the system is called /etc/netplan/50-cloud-init.yaml, and that netplan only recognizes files with a .yaml extension, not .yml. – slangasek Jan 21 at 6:05
  • In order for us to help you, please post the complete contents of the netplan configuration you're attempting to use, as well as the output of running sudo netplan --debug apply. – slangasek Jan 21 at 6:06
