Segmentation fault while starting a VM headless from snapshot

Reported by: bb90 Owned by:
Component: VM control Version: VirtualBox 5.1.22
Keywords: segfault snapshot headless Cc:
Guest type: Linux Host type: Linux

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

Given a newly created Ubuntu VM installed with Cloud-Init And a snapshot from the VM When I restore the snapshot (VBoxManage snapshot server restorecurrent --> no problem) And start the VM (VBoxManage startvm server --type headless)

Then I get 'VBoxManage: error: Details: code NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005), component SessionMachine, interface ISession' And there is segfault log in syslog (attached).

Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS (Xenial Xerus)
Linux HOST 4.8.0-49-generic #52~16.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Thu Apr 20 10:55:59 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

There is also some path mismatch. Snapshot file is here: /home/USER/VirtualBox VMs/GROUP/server/Snapshots/{b60bca32-76e8-4815-88cd-e55516a6186a}.vdi VBox wants: /home/USER/VirtualBox VMs/GROUP/server/Snapshots/2017-05-09T09-32-52-131952000Z.sav/Snapshots/2017-05-09T09-32-52-131952000Z.sav

Please fix this issue. For now, I have to revert the VirtualBox version to older, working one.

Work around: if the newly created VM is not moved to a VM group. Than the problem does not occur. Maybe the .sav file is not moved with the VM.

Would be interesting to know which older, working version of VirtualBox you are referring to.

Furthermore I would like to have a step-by-step reproduction scenario for the problem triggered with VBox 5.1.22.
