Ticket #10818 (new defect)
modifyhd --resize should warn users about existing snapshots
|Reported by:||Lillo||Owned by:|
When resizing an existing VM using vboxmanage modifyhd vm.vdi --resize 12345 a user should be warned if the VM to be resized has unmerged snapshots. Since neither the documentation nor the vast majority of tips on the internet mention this problem, a user will *naturally* run the command above on what they believe to be *the* associated VDI file, *not* on one of the snapshots.
Consequently, modifyhd should first check whether the VM in question uses unmerged snapshots and issue a warning if so.
A perfect solution would have modifyhd determine the latest snapshot and offer the user to resize that snapshot instead.
