I recently learned that my cable internet service opted me into running a semi-public WiFi network (for the ISP's mobile users). There is an option in account settings to opt out, and it does seem to shut off the extra network.
I'm using my own access point and I (and my neighbours) don't need the extra interference.
Turns out my cable ISP has a "feature" that enables a semi-public WAP on your modem. "No charges" they claim, but it would cause Wi-Fi interference and load on the shared cable system.
I'm guessing very few people disable this as they have no idea it exists.
The hotspot created is for Shaw Mobile cellular Wi-Fi customers.
Weird issue where "knife ssh 'query' 'uptime'" was running against multiple nodes, but the knife command would never exit even after getting the uptimes.
Turns out I had to upgrade my local openssh config from "ProxyCommand" to "ProxyJump" for these hosts on a different subnet (I use an SSH gateway to administer them).
So far, ProxyJump seems like a drop-in replacement for how I was using ProxyCommand.
Downgrading to VirtualBox 6.1.26 from Oracle seems to fix the problem, and I can create VMs with host-only IPs.
This is happening with a CentOS 7 guest, and an Ubuntu 18.04 guest. I tried private network IPs in 192.168 and 10.0 subnets and it still fails.
If I take out the custom network configuration then the VMs create with no issues.
Any VirtualBox/Vagrant users having issues creating VMs under Ubuntu?
When a custom network configuration (e.g. private network) is used then it fails `vboxmanage hostonlyif` with E_ACCESSDENIED.
It looks like I'm not the only one:
I was wondering why my test VM started failing today
