Ticket #11765 (closed defect: fixed)
"guestproperty set" toggles value with Powered Off vm => Fixed in SVN
|Reported by:||vroetman||Owned by:|
|Version:||VirtualBox 4.2.12||Keywords:||guestproperty set|
When the VM is Powered Off,
VBoxManage guestproperty set VMName TestProperty
will set TestProperty with an empty value if TestProperty does not exist.
If TestProperty does exist, it will delete the property.
This means running the command multiple times will toggle the TestProperty value between set and deleted.
In the past, running guestproperty set would make sure the value was deleted, no matter its previous state. This is used to clear values that might be set from a previous run.
This is only when the VM is powered off. It works as expected if the VM is running.
This might be related to Ticket #11719.
