VBoxHeadless - Running Virtual Machines With VirtualBox 4.1 On A Headless Fedora 17 Server


This guide explains how you can run virtual machines with VirtualBox 4.1 on a headless Fedora 17 server. Normally you use the VirtualBox GUI to manage your virtual machines, but a server does not have a desktop environment. Fortunately, VirtualBox comes with a tool called VBoxHeadless that allows you to connect to the virtual machines over a remote desktop connection, so there's no need for the VirtualBox GUI.
