Cannot Find AR_Base

Latest reply: Nov 2, 2014 17:37:54 7069 8 0 0 0

Dear Sir,

I have upgraded my eNSP simulator to the new version, and everytime I am trying to start a router I received a Virtualbox server message saying: Cannot find AR_Base (Please see printscreen attached)

 

What can I do to solve this problem?

Thanks.

maybe you should try to reinstall the whole eNSP. Otherwise I don't know how you can create that AR_Base machine. I attached a snapshot of how it should look like.

Thank a80026175 for your answer.

Also, I have a few points to add:

I.if you get the message saying: Cannot find AR_base,you should follow to do something.

     1.close eNSP

     2.open virtual box,if you find anything like "AR_CloneXXXX",right click it and then delete it.   

     3.start eNSP,click "menu - tools - Register AR_base ".if register failed, maybe you should uninstall eNSP,and delete the  

        install dir,then install eNSP again.

II.do not start AR_base.when you start a AR, the AR_base should be closed,and a AR_CloneXXX is running.

III.if a AR have been started,and command line information is "the device is running" ,but you can not input anything for a

    long time.you should set your windows firewall, open windows firewall,and find eNSP_VBoxServer.exe,click the "public"

    column.

I initially installed eNSP on Windows 7 Professional 64-bit machine without any issues. When I tried to install eNSP on my Windows XP SP3 32-bit machine I ran into trouble with eNSP_VBoxServer that was unable to find AR_Base.

The registration of the AR_Base is not handled by the eNSP installer. I suspect that during first run the AR_Base is coupled with VirtualBox.

I noticed that when you start VirtualBox on a known good installation you'll see an entry for guest named "AR_Base (AR_Base_Link)". This was not present on other machines where I've tried to install eNSP (among them Windows XP SP2 64-bit and Windows 8).

I came up with a workaround to fix the AR_Base registration outside of eNSP. The workarounds mentioned on this forum (and various Internet searches did not work on any of my machines).


In order to register the virtual machine AR_Base you'll need to edit the following files:

  1. VirtualBox.xml (typically located in C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\.VirtualBox)
  2. AR_Base.vdi (typically located in C:\Program Files\Huawei\eNSP\VBoxServer\AR_Base\)


Follow these steps to edit the configuration files.

Step 1.) Ensure that both VirtualBox and eNSP are not running.

Step 2.) Insert the following code after </ExtraData> using editing tool (EditPad, WordPad etc.) in VirtualBox.xml



    <MachineRegistry>
      <MachineEntry uuid="{31acab23-7e00-4e45-8f97-1a890112a905}" src="C:\Program Files (x86)\Huawei\eNSP\VBoxServer\AR_Base\AR_Base.vbox"/>
      <MachineEntry uuid="{09efa955-172c-491d-b3f4-43c92e666168}" src="C:\Program Files (x86)\Huawei\eNSP\VBoxServer\Devices\AR_Clone_BD156A08-9D0D-4881-A55C-3A68537852CF\AR_Clone_BD156A08-9D0D-4881-A55C-3A68537852CF.vbox"/>
    </MachineRegistry>




Step 3.) Insert the following code after </ExtraData> using editing tool (EditPad, WordPad etc.) in AR_Base.vbox

Step 4.) Ensure that both files have been closed before you start eNSP (otherwise eNSP will fail to call VirtualBox)
Step 5.) Start eNSP
Step 6.) Open a topology, I have confirmed this workaround with the example topologies 1-1RIPv1&v2 and 2-1Single-Area OSPF
Step 7.) Start any of the AR series routers

Hope this helps.

Make sure you have Virtual box started and the virtual machine named AR_Base has the running state.

Dear Sir,

The virtual box is always started, but there is not virtual machine named AR_base as you mentionned.

I made a snapshot for the virtual machine. I previously started them all and launched eNSP but still same error.

Any suggestion?
