You can use the facility for automated install, certainly. You will need to have previously configured supporting network services, such as a DHCP server, an HTTP server, and if PXE booting, a TFTP server.

See the autoinstall(8) man page for complete details.

From the top of my head that is a very bad idea. We used VirtualBox in production in my lab before I replaced it with KVM and FreeBSD Jails. Unless you are in the Bridged networking mode only one of your virtual machines will receive dhcp lease. You heard me correct. You might have 10 virtual machines but only one will have dhcp lease by default. There is a way to work around it.

Long story short if you are planning to test automated install you should have enough hardware (could be 15 year old PIII) to set up a mock network. VirtualBox is just a bad idea.

It depends of the utility...
If mfaridi just want to do some tests, VB is enough.
Only one host, and as many guests as you want, so as many tests as you want

Or VB can be used as a sandbox...

Then test autoinstall in VirtualBox. Not officially supported != won't run.

I'm confused, because mfaridi has OpenBSD running as a VB guest now.

Can you please try to tell us what else you need, mfaridi?
