Live snaphot cloning (VBoxManage clonevm) fails when basefolder is SMB share

Reported by: ark Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 6.0.8
Keywords: live snapshot clonevm samba Cc:
Guest type: all Host type: Linux


When the --basefolder is specified to point to a Samba share, the clonevm process fails for a previously-created live snapshot.

Interesting note: the issue does NOT occur when the snapshot was taken from a VM that was powered off (not live). Live snapshot clones do succeed, however, when the basefolder is on the local ext4 filesystem.

Host is Ubuntu 16.04 amd64 running kernel 4.15.

$ VBoxManage snapshot "{7a81c085-7fd5-49c6-a698-c64eda275119}" take backup.tmp --live
Snapshot taken. UUID: d53e1bfb-2111-4945-ac1a-d1b10206c5f3

$ VBoxManage clonevm "{7a81c085-7fd5-49c6-a698-c64eda275119}" --snapshot backup.tmp --options keepallmacs,keepdisknames --basefolder /vmdata/_backups/tmp --name "iot-manager.bak"

This is still occurring in 6.0.10, using an NFS share. See here for additional info :

Can this get escalated ASAP please?

Note: I've opened a new ticket for this issue when dealing with NFS.
