I need to access Virtual Box from my HOST machine. I need to create a ODBC connection on HOST using the ipaddress of the Virtual Box on which Oracle Virtual Appliance is imported. When i go to the gnome terminal on the Virtual Box I dont get any ip address when i type ifconfig.
Is there a way i can find the ipaddress of the virtual machine/database so that I can access it from my HOST?
Not sure it will work for you in your current state, but this usually works for me. Enter on a terminal screen:
Under normal circumstances, you will get a list that looks something like this:
[root@ovs1 xen]# arp -a
stora-1.***.com (192.168.0.251) at 00:26:f2:db:94:4b [ether] on c0a80000
ovm.***.com (192.168.0.65) at 00:0c:29:5b:05:4b [ether] on c0a80000
filesrv.***.com (192.168.0.61) at 00:0c:29:5e:8d:bd [ether] on c0a80000
Since you don't see an IP address in ifconfig, I'm not certain if anything useful will return.
