VirtualBox Headless Administration

VirtualBox is often used on the desktop through it’s GUI interface. Sometimes, though, you’ll need to run it on a headless server somewhere on the internet. Our demonstration setup today is on a Debian 7 (Wheezy) system, and the virtual machine we’re creating will use a placeholder of $VM for it’s name. We’ll assume the guest OS is Debian, and that you’ve already installed VirtualBox itself to the host.
