Ticket #10834 (closed defect: obsolete)
vboxmanage controlvm <vm> poweroff hangs
|Reported by:||Scrub Jay||Owned by:|
I start several XP guests via Headless, then "controlvm poweroff" and "snapshot <vm> restorecurrent" before repeating the sequence. About every 200-300 cycles, the vboxmanage controlvm <vm> poweroff will hang, and continually spit errors to the log per the attached. I read in an old forum that concurrently powering off multiple guests can cause a hang, so I've wrapped mine in a lock that ensures 2 second delays between poweroff's of different guests. That does not eliminate the problem.
