VirtualBox 6.1.6 with Hyper-V/Vagrant corrupts downloads

Reported by: oramirez Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 6.1.6

Guest type: other Host type: other



VirtualBox 6.1.6, Vagrant 2.2.9, Windows 10 with Hyper-V enabled.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. vagrant init bento/ubuntu-18.04
  2. vagrant up; vagrant ssh

Inside VM:

  1. wget (REPEAT 3 TIMES)
  2. sha256sum docker-ce_19.03.11~3-0~ubuntu-bionic_amd64.deb; sha256sum docker-ce_19.03.11~3-0~ubuntu-bionic_amd64.deb.1; sha256sum docker-ce_19.03.11~3-0~ubuntu-bionic_amd64.deb.2

Every time you get a different hash! This does not happen if VM is run directly in Hyper-V, without VirtualBox (vagrant up --provider=hyperv)

I encounter the same problem today.

This bug won't show if you download via HTTP, not HTTPS.

I write a small tool to compare the corrupted file with the correct one byte by byte, and find that every time there is 2 to 3 bytes differ while theirs sizes are all the same.

Note that not turning off Hyper-V completely can cause this problem too. (my case)
VMware Workstation Player can detect this but VirtualBox(at least v6.1.8) can't.

To turn off it completely:

  • Open a Command Prompt with Adminstrator rights
  • Input: bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off
  • Reboot your computer.

FYI: I try to install Linux Mint on VirtualBox but get CD-ROM I/O error everytime. After fixing this, I can install it successfully. Maybe they are related?

I am encountering the same issue with the same Hyper-V/Vagrant setup. Same symptoms looks like the same as those kbridge is encountering: when the files are downloaded, they're all the same size as the correct file, but tar can't open them up. (The files in question on my machine are not zips, they are tarballs.)

Interestingly, tar is not random-access like zip, and so tar can open them up *part* of the way, until it encounters the erroneous bytes. This agrees with kbridge's diagnosis as well.

One interesting thing is that no matter how many times i download the file, it can only unpack the same files, the first few documentation files in my case. However, that doesn't mean that the corrupt files are all the same, as every time I download the file, the sha256sum of each file download is different, and all of them different from the sha256sum of the original file.

Version informatoin:

Windows 10 build 2004, OS build 19041.450

Vagrant version 2.2.9

VirtualBox Version 6.1.12 r139181 (Qt5.6.2)
