VBoxManage guestcontrol execute: XP to Linux Not Working

Reported by: __LEO__ Owned by:
Component: guest control Version: VirtualBox 4.1.8
Keywords: VBoxManage guestControl Not Working Cc:
Guest type: other Host type: other


I can not run a program/script on my guest OS from my host OS.

I type the following code into a cmd prompt:

VboxManage guestcontrol “Linux Red Hat” execute –image “/bin/ls” –username root –password 12345
VBoxManage.exe error: The guest execution service is not ready (yet)

The VM is currently running. Here is the output:

    C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox>VBoxManage list runningvms
    "Red Hat Linux" {07a1f39d-bf93-406c-a840-1f86ace08636}

I also have "shared folders" working.

The attached log file shows verr_not_found

The attached log file shows /pwd not /ls but that shouldn't matter. I gave an up to date log output.

My Setup

Host OS Windows XP SP3

Guest OS Red Hat Linust (RHEL) 5.7

VirtualBox 4.1.8 for Windows hosts

Guest Additions Installed (Verified because I can share a folder from Host OS to Guest OS no problems)

Guest OS Network is working with NAT.
