Ticket #1075 (closed enhancement: wontfix)
Invalid snapshot because of parent modification not detected
|Reported by:||ugemkow||Owned by:|
We are using a configuration, which is not really "standard" on Linux host with Windows XP guest:
We are using a shared VDI which is used readonly used by several client, which create their own snapshot derived from this VDI, so each user has his own "virtual installation" based on this common base vdi.
When modifying this common vdi (installation of a changed base install), VBox does not detect that the snapshots derived from the old install are invalid.
The could be prevented by a simple timestamp in the vdi and its snapshots.
I know, this problem will not occur when using VBox "as designed" so please close this ticket when appropiate
