Overview

VirtualBox is minikube’s original driver. It may not provide the fastest start-up time, but it is the most stable driver available for users of Microsoft Windows Home.

Requirements

Usage

minikube start --driver=virtualbox

To make virtualbox the default driver:

minikube config set driver virtualbox

Special features

minikube start supports some VirtualBox specific flags:

  • --host-only-cidr: The CIDR to be used for the minikube VM (default “192.168.99.1/24”)
  • --no-vtx-check: Disable checking for the availability of hardware virtualization

Issues
