I'd like to get a script working that would automate the following

  1. create a virtual machine
  2. install a linux distro
  3. run a command inside the distro
  4. shutdown and remove the virtual machine

To create VM, I can use vbox manage. however I have no idea if it is even possible to automate installing linux (for example from ubuntu.iso) and inside that installation run another script.

let me know your thoughts.
