I've deployed an opensuse server 12.2 at work to be the domain 0 for some virtual machines. I know that I'd probably be better off using the XEN that's built into opensuse, but our team is very comfortable using Oracle's virtualbox software, so that's what we're trying. I have the virtual machines running, however I'm having trouble accessing opensuse via vnc AND being able to administer the virtualbox software. When I VNC using the built in remote administration, I get a new session where I don't see my VMs running. When I use VNC and then start the VMs in the VNC session, they all die as soon as I disconnect. Can somebody help me understand the correct way set this up? I'm using the default KDE desktop (I'm not yet comfortable enough to just use a terminal prompt).

You would be better off learning to navigate the terminal. As for whats happening when you vnc, yes it will do that, its giving you a new session, and when you close it, its logging you off and closing the session. As for actually running it, I am unsure, I would have to set it up myself via terminal to actually get it right, I would read around about how to use virtual box and openSUSE.

As I searched around I came accross this: Click Here
It seems to be a pretty complete guide to do what you are trying to do. :)
