Ticket #1032 (closed enhancement: fixed)
New option for VBoxManage: startvm -type cli
|Reported by:||markba||Owned by:|
Currently, starting a vm is possible in two modes: gui (normal) and headless (type = vrdp). When I'm running a session of Ubuntu Server, there's no builtin VRDP-server. Nevertheless, when I want this session to run on the background, I *must* use the vrdp-option. Problem: this option is only available in the closed version of VB.
So, even when I don't use the vrdp-capabilities (because Ubuntu Server does not have them), I must use the closed version for using the vrdp-option.
I opt for adding a new option: "-type cli", possibly in the ose-version. In that way it's clear that I don't want the vrdp-option (which is nice anyway) whenever I'm using a non-Windows headless session.
