I am trying to Automate the build and deploy process of a piece of server software we make, this software runs on ubuntu 12.04 but doesn't allow "apt-get" for security reasons.
I have gotten as far as installing the VM using VBoxManage however to run our automated test suit I need the IPV4 Address of said server.
Is there a way to get an IP without using Guest additions eg
VBoxManage guestproperty get <VMNAME> "/VirtualBox/GuestInfo/Net/V4/IP"
EDIT: the use of
guestcontrol was suggested as it doesn't need guest additions, however the
run subcommand (or
execute for pre VirtualBox 5) does require GA installed to function. Using the
execute sub command returns
VBoxManage: error: The guest execution service is not ready (yet)
