same response for your other question
In virtualbox what is the network adapter type for this vm?
When you setup redhat did you configure the network settings to also include your gateway ip address? Are you on the same subnet as your host machine?
Lucky ThamFreelancerAuthor Commented:
I didn't do anything at all just to ensure that it can ping Google first and my network subnet like when my redhat added a NAT Network adapter without issue.

After that I connect my fortinet vpn client thr IPSec and still can ping and resolve my private cloud thr hostname.

Next day I do the same thing like connect to my iPad 4G network to my Hp laptop wifi.

Can ping and resolved on my hp laptop even being connected to vpn.

The guest os redhat from virtualbox on nat can ping but not able to resolve now.

Why yesterday can and today can't without changing anything?

the error messages show that mount point or dir is not there, create then mount or you can mount to /mnt

Is the vbox tooling inside the same version as the vbox you are using to run this VM in?

Besides the ~/share is a non existent directory, do mkdir ~/share first.
~ is replaced by the shell with the login directory of the logged on user.

what is vbox tooling? how to confirm this?

can't create dir!

nociSoftware EngineerCommented:
a read only filesystem is indicative of errors in the filesystem.

Was it read only from booting the system or did that start later...
if it was writable during boot you need to reboot first.  (the boot system will attempt an fsck).
If it was read only from booting, then try fsck -f /  and then reboot.
Lucky ThamFreelancerAuthor Commented:
it was running and can resolve the hostname but i don't know what went wrong after performing yum update.

error running fsck -f /

Is your sustem in sigle user mode?

What who -i returns?
nociSoftware EngineerCommented:
vboxfs is a filesystem type that is alien to linux, it is provided for in vbox tooling (virtualbox guest additions) to help smooth out the working of some "stuff" between a guest OS and the host running it. And the driver inside the guest must be matched to the service provided by virtualbox.
xbox tooling is installed  by mounting a "CD-ROM" image and running some install script.

try fsck -f /dev/sda1  (or what ever the device / is mounted on).  
mount   #will tell you this.

I don't understand. How to check tat for you? Thanks.

nociSoftware EngineerCommented:
for xfs filesystem try:

xfs_repair /dev/sda1 as indicated.
Lucky ThamFreelancerAuthor Commented:
done. will restart it? What should i do after restarted? Thanks

nociSoftware EngineerCommented:
first you can check the lost+found folder for what is there...
(you may need to check contents of files) if those are harmless files... (not critical config files or programs) then yes reboot.
and recover them afterwards.
If those files can be recognized as critical files you may need to resote an image or reinstall the system.

How to check the lost and found folder? Thanks.
nociSoftware EngineerCommented:
ls -l /lost+found

and use less on the files in there?
less will warn if files are binary.

Thanks. Will try again later.
