      Description

      It seems that the new node/configure node page does not correctly poll the list of machine names. I had to restart vboxwebsrv a couple of times since I tried to have it run as a windows scheduled task. At some point, I had the cloud already configured and tried to configure the existing node or create a new one and although the VirtualBox Host field was filled correctly, the Virtual Machine Name list was empty. It did cost me a couple of hours, reboots and restarts to figure out that when I just saved the node without a machine name and then edited it again, the machine name suddenly popped up.

      Sorry if this might be the wrong component to post this. Not really sure if this is a a problem of the plug-in or Jenkins in general, I'm just starting to use Jenkins and find my way around...

          This always happens when you create a new machine in the cloud (using the vboxmanage command) and then add it to the Jenkins cloud. On "Create new Slave", the list is always empty. You have to keep it empty, just save the new slave (without a cloud machine assigned) and the again edit the newly created slave. When editing the full list appears correctly.
