Hi, @davidhmcd. Did you change any settings on the VM? Like did you change the Linux/RedHat 64 in the Operating System setting to something else? This is just a guess on my part.

 

When you imported the OVA file, did all seem to go well?

This was not the issue, I had been on Tumbleweed prior to this error which happened after an update. I had previously changed this setting from red hat to SUSE and it worked fine. I switched to CentOS and all is fine!!!!

Hi, @davidhmcd. Just curious why you switched the setting in the first place? I've not heard of any necessity of changing the derault OS setting so I'd love to know your reason so I can add that to our knowledge base.

I just changed it to match my OS, I did not read anywhere that you should not. As I said, it never caused a problem until my last Vbox update. Thanks for the reply!!!
