I have been trying to install Oracle 18.104.22.168 Suite on a Virtual box in Windows 2012 R2 server (macbook pro, corei5, 16gb ram),
I am stuck when I try to configure the "Shared Services", I keep getting the following error "IO Error: The network adapter could not establish the connection"
I have gone through this post "IO Error: The network adapter could not establish the connection and installed loopback adapter before I installed oracle 12c, I am able to create users and grant privileges fine through sql plus, but still get the same issue.
After installing loopback adapter, now I have two ethernet connections (1loopback and 1 shared network with mac OS), do I have to disable the network which is being shared with mac OS ? is there a blog or post that addresses this issue ? also Loopback adapter is always "unidentified network" with no internet access.
Thanks in advance for anyone who wants to help and sorry if I am not clear with the post as I am more of hyperion developer than admin.
After disabling the network that is shared with my Mac OS, I am able to get to next step. Thanks!, Installing Loopback adapter indeed fixes the issue.
