Description

noting this similar symptom, from a still open issue

"vboxmanage list runningvms does not list anything" https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/6808#propertyform

has that been fixed/addressed elsewhere?

here, running latest VB release

	VBoxManage --version
		6.1.6r137129

on host,

	lsb_release -rd
		Description:    openSUSE Leap 15.1
		Release:        15.1

checking available vms, correctly returns

	> VBoxManage list vms
		"Debian_Stable" {...}
		"Win10_Pro" {...}
		"openSUSE_Leap" {...}
	>

if i launch a guest, e.g.

	"openSUSE_Leap"

is, atm, up & running ... and accessible,

	ps ax | grep vir
		24799 ?        Sl     0:16 /usr/lib/virtualbox/VirtualBox
		24816 ?        S      0:08 /usr/lib/virtualbox/VBoxXPCOMIPCD
		24822 ?        Sl     0:19 /usr/lib/virtualbox/VBoxSVC --auto-shutdown
		40167 ?        Sl     0:27 /usr/lib/virtualbox/VirtualBoxVM --comment openSUSE_Leap --startvm ... --no-startvm-errormsgbox
		40176 ?        S      0:00 /usr/lib/virtualbox/VBoxXPCOMIPCD
		40182 ?        Sl     0:00 /usr/lib/virtualbox/VBoxSVC --auto-shutdown

but checking RUNNING vms, still (again?) returns blank

are you sure that the user running the VMs and the user trying to list the VMs are the same and not by any chance different?

also I cannot reproduce this on a Windows 10 host either.
