VBoxManage guestcontrol with bad credentials crashes VM => Fixed in SVN

Reported by: rjoyce Owned by:
Priority: major Component: guest control
Version: VirtualBox 4.3.2 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: all
Host type: Linux

Description

Executing a guestcontrol operation from a CentOS 6.4 or Mac OS X 10.8 host, using incorrect credentials, causes the VM to crash and enter the Aborted state. (On a Windows host, it works fine.)

% vboxmanage guestcontrol "Linux Mint 15 64-bit" stat / --username myUser --password BADpass --verbose

Opening guest session as user 'myUser' ...
Waiting for guest session to start ...
VBoxManage: error: Invalid user/password credentials

VBoxManage: error: Context: "WaitForArray(ComSafeArrayAsInParam(aSessionWaitFlags), 30 * 1000, &sessionWaitResult)" at line 940 of file VBoxManageGuestCtrl.cpp

The attached VBox log is from a CentOS 6.4 64-bit host with a Linux Mint 15 64-bit guest, using VirtualBox 4.3.2 (and 4.3.2 guest additions). A Windows 7 32-bit guest also crashes with bad credentials.

Interestingly, you can also make this happen with proper credentials by just adding bad arguments. For instance

% vboxmanage guestcontrol "Linux Mint 15 64-bit" stat / --username myUser --password correctPass --verbose --foo

(note "--foo") causes the VM to crash as well.
