Ticket #10173 (new defect)
Mistake with iSCSI authentication causes Segmentation Fault => fixed in svn/next maintenance release
|Reported by:||Steltek||Owned by:|
|Version:||VirtualBox 4.1.8||Keywords:||iscsi segmentation fault|
Description (last modified by aeichner) (diff)
While toying around with iSCSI support recently, I noticed that VirtualBox crashes very quickly at the slightest problem with the SCSI target data (like wrong authentication credentials).
The UI displays an error stating:
Failed to determine the accessibility state of the medium .
Callee RC: NS_ERROR_CALL_FAILED (0x800706BE)
The console where the VirtualBox command was run shows 'Segmentation Fault', the kernel log outputs: [ 6613.591346] VBoxSVC: segfault at b677b008 ip b73f6626 sp b67783fc error 4 in libc-2.13.so[b737d000+153000] [ 6621.900797] VirtualBox: segfault at 9d12af8 ip 09d12af8 sp bff4829c error 15
After this crash, it is impossible tostart VirtualBox again until one manually removes all references to the iSCSI volume from the VM's XML config file. (VirtualBox will keep crashing the same way until this is done.)
In addition to that, VirtualBox loses the state of running VMs after this crash (all VMs are shown as 'Powered Off' even though some are running). The only way around this seems to be to shut down all VMs and all VirtualBox related processes, and start everything again.
