VirtualBox 4.3 - wrong hardwareuuid

Reported by: www0815 Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 4.3.0
Keywords: UUID, hardwareuuid Cc:
Guest type: Windows Host type: Linux


If you run the following command:
VBoxManage --nologo showinfo --machinereadable "YOUR MACHINE NAME" | grep 'hardwareuuid'
You get the following result:
with Version 4.2.18: hardwareuuid="30761f24-1e22-49c8-a4a5-dedc4a7ed74c" (or anything similar)
with Version 4.3: hardwareuuid="00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000"

This is very annoying, because lot's of scripts use the variable hardwareuuid to start or modify a virtual machine. But with such a hardwareuuid all scripts won't work anymore. Please correct this.

By the way: The following command doesn't have any effect in version 4.3:
VBoxManage modifyvm "YOUR MACHINE NAME" --hardwareuuid "30761f24-1e22-49c8-a4a5-dedc4a7ed74c"
The hardware uuid is after this command still full of zeros.
