Saving-error when 2 VMs running

Reported by: SL_1 Owned by:
Priority: major Component: VM control
Version: VirtualBox 4.1.18 Keywords: close with saving VM state
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Windows


If I have 2 VMs running - one in paused mode, the other one not - I can't save both VMs (close and save state) without having one crashing! When I try to save one of the VM the saving process goes until 99% and stops. I have to kill the VM process to going ahead with my work.

All systems (host, both guests) are WinXP 32: host: XP 5.1 Build 2600.xpsp_sp3_gdr guest1: XP 5.1 Build 2600.xpsp_sp3_gdr; guest addition 4.1.4 guest2: XP 5.1 Build 2600.xpsp; guest addition 4.0.6

Could you attach the VBox.log file of both VMs when one crashed?

I dont know which log to add from the other VM. All logs look pretty the same. Sorry.

I also would like to see the VBox.log file of the other VM. You said that you have two VMs running. The log file you attached seems to be from a VM which did not crash.

We also need a way to reproduce your problem because saving both VMs when there are two active VMs (even if one is paused) works very well here.

Hej Frank.

You arent German, are you? It would be easier for me to discuss in german if possible.

Back to topic: Where can I see which log is the right one without reproducing the crash? At the moment I wont do that, will see at the WE.

And the logs I have found look pretty the same! Actually I thought the attached log would be the one of the crash because of the error messages at the end.

How did you know that :) Better let's continue in English because other users / developers will read these comments as well.

One hint is the time stamp of the log files, another hint are the lines Log opened 2012-07-10... where the exact time is logged when the VM was started.

If one VM crashes I would expect that the VM would not contain the line Changing the VM state from 'POWERING_OFF' to 'OFF'.

If you don't find the right log files (maybe they are already rotated because by default only the last 4 log files are kept) then rather try to reproduce it when you are able to.

Thank you!
