This aprt of the error message you’re getting seems to suggest a way to
get more information. What do you get when you run the suggested
commands (as root)?

Another thought - are you running these commands in the VM or on the host?

Im running OpenSUSE in a VM

But did you run the network commands in the VM or in the host?

And what was the result of the suggested commands you got in response?
Those commands will give us more information about what the problem is,
which is why they’re suggested when the commands you’re trying to run
fail.

Aside from the suggestion that you should inspect your journal using the command suggested in the error…

  • My guess is that the error will also be reported in the syslog as well as the journal, you can “tail” to get the last 10 entries or specify a number to display more, eg
tail -n 50 /var/log/messages
  • Verify in your Guest properties that it’s configured with the proper network. No available network will cause eth0 to not be configured.
  • Although for now you can still start/stop/restart the network using the init.d command, you might want to get used to using the systemd command instead
systemctl start/stop/status network.service
  • You might inspect and perhaps post the results from the following, it provide some usable information
ip addr

Also,
You should describe whether you’re running openSUSE with a Desktop and if so, which version (I’ve recently discovered that some functionality is missing in the Minimal Server configuration, eg the syslog is missing so only the journal can be used - Don’t know if that’s intentional or not).

HTH,
