I am trying to install Mirantis Openstack on my windows machine(8.1). The entire process i have done till now is:

Install oracle virtualbox with extension pack

Install cygwin

Install procps, expect, openssh on cygwin

on running ./ i get this error:

Verifying interface VirtualBox Host-Only Ethernet Adapter has IP and mask properly set.

*New IP address does not match the applied one Looks like VirtualBox failed to apply settings for interface VirtualBox Host-Only Ethernet Adapter

Sometimes such error happens under Windows.

Please run one more time.

If this error remains after several attempts, then something really went wrong. Aborting.*

Like it says, i tried this a several times(coz it's windows :P) but to no luck. Please help

Do you have the latest version of Virtual Box installed, as well the extension pack. Also can you post the entire output of the '' or at least an excerpt from where the error is. Also take a peak in the '' if you need to tweak the default setup. Good Luck.
