vbox log file

comment:1 Changed 18 months ago by sunlover

The error from the VBox.log.2 file can happen if the shared folder description exists in the saved state but does not exist in the VM config. This should not happen.

Could you please tell us how to reproduce the problem?

Did you edit the VM config file?

comment:2 Changed 18 months ago by vbox888

VM config not edited. Win7 host, Ubuntu 13.10 guest, vbox 4.3.4 guest additions run vbox as admin

My guess is that nothing is written to VM config file when a shared folder is added.

What about VBox.log.2 error INVALID_PARAMETER ?

comment:3 Changed 18 months ago by sunlover

So how to reproduce the problem? Please describe exact steps.

That is for example:

  • create a Ubuntu VM, install guest additions;
  • configure a shared folder (how exactly the folder was configured);
  • do something;
  • save the VM state;
  • do something;
  • start the VM again and get the error.

We have to reproduce the problem here to be able to help you.

Login to Ubuntu user account mkdir mnt popup at bottom of screen devices > shared folders > transient folders > add folder select folder Documents on C: drive sudo mount -t vboxsf Documents mnt sudo cp mnt/da0114.tgz . (copy a file) sudo umount mnt popup > close VM > save VM state start VM again and get the error

Thanks. Reproduced it. The problem happened when the VM had transient shared folders and was saved/restored in fullscreen mode.

The fix will be available in the next VBox release.

This problem appears to be back as of VB v4.3.10 (with guest additions.) I'm running a Ubuntu 12.04 guest on Windows 7 Pro, both 64-bit. I did a 'save' of my VM and rebooted Windows; now I'm getting this error. Usually I do a full shutdown, but this time I was in a hurry ... :-( My VM XML and log files are attached.

Note that unlike previous instances of this issue, my shared folders do not appear to be missing from my XML file.

Hopefully someone can suggest a workaround to get my VM working again ASAP. There were no dirty files in the shared folders, so perhaps I can just remove the shares, launch, and re-add them?

Thanks in advance for the help,

  • Busybox

Thanks for the report. But please open a new ticket for the new problem.

The original problem has been fixed and there is not need to mix different issues in one ticket.

Thanks.
