Hello Devs,

On Linux Ubuntu(precise_amd64), i ve got an error using the Webservice to register a VM, this error does not occur using the command line.

I want to register a VM using the vboxwebsrv (runas vbox user). I use IVirtualBox_openMachine and IVirtualBox_registerMachine.

IVirtualBox_openMachine fails using webservice :
exception VirtualBox error: Cannot attach medium '/mnt/nfs/volcbdata/demoAlexWindowsXp/demoAlexWWindowsXp-disk1.vdi' {b3cf56ef-48ba-4dc8-9efc-77a64c43e534} from snapshot '775ed2f4-fd3e-487d-8963-f8ae4515eccd': medium is already in use by this snapshot! (0x80BB000C)
But if i use the command line "vboxmanage registervm", it works using the same file

vbox at pbox:~$ vboxmanage registervm /mnt/nfs/volcbdata/demoAlexWindowsXp/demoAlexWindowsXp.vbox
vbox at pbox:~$ vboxmanage list vms
"demoAlexWindowsXp" {2bac5ce4-4e95-4573-b42f-29c3536c58a1}
vbox at pbox:~$

I use the last release VirtualBox 4.2.16

Why does the command line work ?
Thank you in advance...

Best Regards
