keyboard not working

Reported by: infinity Owned by:
Component: guest control Version: VirtualBox 5.1.6
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: Linux Host type: Windows


The keyboard does not work for guest when I updated from 5.1.4 to 5.1.6, my host is Windows 10 and guest is Oracle Linux 7.2. When I start the VM using "Headless Start" or "Detachable Start" the keyboard does not work, but if I start the VM using "Normal Start" the keyboard works properly. Also, please refer to the following link (others are experiencing same issue):

Same issue here - Host W2012R2, tested VirtualBox 5.1.6 and current testbuild 5.1.7r110653. In headless/detachable, keyboard does not work after pressing host key once. In normal mode, keyboard works.
