VirtualBox cannot run when Hyper-V is installed

Objective of this article to share how to solve the problem of VirtualBox can not run when Hyper-V is installed in windows machines. This problem might occur when we try to run VirtualBox where already docker was installed. Because docker internally enables Hyper-V configuration in windows which will be the problem to run VirtualBox.

VirtualBox can not run when Hyper-V is installed

There are total 3 steps which we must follow to enable/disable Hyper-V in Windows 10.

  1. Search for Apps & Features in Windows Search option
  2. Search for Turn Windows features on or off
  3. Select/deselect the Hyper-V option from the popup opened to enable/disable accordingly.

For more detailed explanation continue with further article.

  • Search for Apps & Features in Windows Search option: Look at the below image for more easiness to find Apps & Features option.
Windows Apps & Features
  • Search for Turn Windows features on or off
Turn Windows feature on or of
  • Select/Deselect the Hyper-V option from the popup opened: Deselect Hyper-V option and click on OK button to disable Hyper-V in your system. Since Hyper-V is OS level configuration, it will ask to restart the computer to make changes are affected.
Hyper-V enable/disable

We should restart the system to make affect of Hyper-V configuration changes. Afterwards, try to run the virtual box again. Hope it will run successfully without any failure.

REST API to get Projects from CLI

Objective of this article to know how to call REST API from CLI to get the projects list. Continue further to know various problems and solutions to overcome and finally list the projects.

How to call REST API from CLI?
To call REST API from CLI, we can use curl -k command followed by the REST URL. For more information look at the below command,

curl -k

API call failed with Forbidden (403) response

How to solve Forbidden (403) issue while calling REST API?
Since we are not authorized who is calling the API, we end up with the problem of 403 Forbidden. To solve this problem, login as developer by using the following command.

oc login -u developer -p developer

user login from CLI

Then issue the below command to get the security token which we need to pass in REST API call.

oc whoami -t

Identifying the security key by issuing the command of whoami

Now pass the security key in the REST call Authorization by using -H “Authorization: Bearer PaqE4Ui1mirlpAUqi6w-20VQS0qeD3EXA8w1IhwewqE”. The complete URL looks like,

curl -k -H “Authorization: Bearer PaqE4Ui1mirlpAUqi6w-20VQS0qeD3EXA8w1IhwewqE”

API call success response when we don’t have any projects

Below image will show you what is the response we will get when we have already created project in OpenShift.

OpenShift oc is not recognized as command

Objective of this article to make you understand how to solve the problem of OpenShift oc command is not recognized as an internal or external command in CLI.

oc is not recognized as command

To overcome this problem we have to setup the path of the OpenShift CLI which we can get is by executing the below command.

minishift oc-env

oc environment details

Copy the full line of set path and execute the same. SET PATH=C:\Users\subbaiah.nallamachu.minishift\cache\oc\v3.11.0\windows;%PATH%

openshift path setup

Now the system will not throw the problem of not recognized as a command.

How to list all OpenShift supported commands?

This is very simple task to identify the list of OpenShift supported commands. Issue the oc –help to get list of commands.

C:\minishift-1.34.2-windows-amd64>oc –help
