Ticket #14350 (closed defect: fixed)

Opened 2 years ago

Last modified 2 years ago

The --setuuid switch of `vboxmanage storageattach` is broken in vbox 5 => Fixed in SVN

Reported by: martyone Owned by:
Priority: major Component: virtual disk
Version: VirtualBox 5.0.0 Keywords: storage uuid
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: other

Description

When passed an empty argument, it sets a null uuid instead of a random one, making the disk image unusable.

$ vboxmanage storageattach MyVM --storagectl SATA --port 1 --medium \

~/VirtualBox\ VMs/MyVM/MyVM.vdi --type hdd --setuuid ""

Note: vboxmanage internalcommands sethduuid works well; as a workaround the two commands can be combined, omitting the --setuuid switch of storageattach.
