VBoxManage --createvm --default fails => fixed in next 6.0.x maintenance release

Reported by: spalme77 Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 6.0.16
Keywords: VBoxManage Cc:
Guest type: Linux Host type: Mac OS X


Steps to reproduce my problem:

> VBoxManage createvm --name "test2" --ostype Archlinux_64 --register

works as expected.

> VBoxManage createvm --name "test3" --ostype Archlinux_64 --register --default

throws the following error message:

VBoxManage: error: The machine is not mutable (state is PoweredOff)
VBoxManage: error: Details: code VBOX_E_INVALID_VM_STATE (0x80bb0002), component MachineWrap, interface IMachine, callee nsISupports
VBoxManage: error: Context: "ApplyDefaults(bstrDefaultFlags.raw())" at line 290 of file VBoxManageMisc.cpp

Seems that the logic to apply OS-specific default settings to newly created VMs is somewhere broken (or I am making a stupid mistake).

Any help appreciated. Thanks!
