Unhandled error when ungrouping group who shares name with sibling VM

Reported by: imbibe Owned by:
Component: GUI Version: VirtualBox 4.2.18
Keywords: ungroup Cc:
Guest type: all Host type: Linux


If a group shares it's name with a grouped VM an unhandled error occurs if you attempt to ungroup said group.

On occasion this can result in a freeze followed by crash.

However, if another group on the level being ungrouped to shares it's name with VM a warning is displayed.

I suggest handling the error and presenting the same warning.


Failed to save the settings of the virtual machine work to /[~]/VirtualBox VMs/work/work/work.vbox.

Could not rename the directory '/[~]/VirtualBox VMs/work/work' to '/[~]/VirtualBox VMs/work' to save the settings file (VERR_ALREADY_EXISTS).

Result Code: NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005) Component: SessionMachine Interface: IMachine {22781af3-1c96-4126-9edf-67a020e0e858}


You are trying to move machine work to group which already have sub-group work.

Please resolve this name-conflict and try again.
