Ticket #10598 (new defect)
--timesync-set-on-restore syncs time up to 10 seconds after snapshot restore
|Reported by:||insecure||Owned by:|
I have a Linux guest(additions 4.0.16) and a Windows host(vbox 4.0.16). The guest service is started via:
/usr/sbin/vboxguest-service -f -vvvvv --disable-vminfo --disable-cpuhotplug --disable-vmstats --disable-automount --disable-memballoon --timesync-set-threshold 1000 --timesync-set-on-restore 1
If I restore a snapshot of this machine, even one that is 7 days old, the time is not synced on restore. ~10 seconds (timesync-interval?) after resuming the VM, the vboxguest-service outputs "The VM session ID changed, forcing resync." and time is actually synced.
This causes trouble when working with certificates that are generated after taking the snapshot, so for some use cases this is really annoying.
- Summary changed from --timesync-set-on-restore does not sync time on snapshot restore to --timesync-set-on-restore syncs time up to 10 seconds after snapshot restore
