I've setup a SQL server VM using Virutalbox on one of my servers. It needs to boot when the host server starts up. I have it running via "vboxheadless.exe" so it'll run w/o displaying the guest UI.
I setup a simple batch script that starts the VM. I've tested the script & it works.
I setup a scheduled task to run this script at startup. When the server reboots, Scheduled Tasks shows that it runs the script, but the VM isn't running when I log into the server.
Is it a requirement that a local profile be loaded in order to run the VM in Virutalbox?
I'd love to be able to run the VM as a service, but couldn't find anything on how this could be done.
