After restarting a virtual machine (VM) running within Virtual Box, both the database and listener fail to start. Prior to the restart, both had started up successfully. Checking within the /etc/hosts file, this file is now empty, which is why the listener and database fail to start. What could cause entries to be removed from the hosts file after the VM restart?
