VBoxHeadless – Running Virtual Machines With VirtualBox 4.1 On A Headless Ubuntu 12.04 Server
This guide explains how you can run virtual machines with VirtualBox 4.1
on a headless Ubuntu 12.04 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.
