Description

When a session is started with VBoxManage, this is shown as process info:

$ ps -ef | grep "JeOS"
user      7085  6439  7 11:51 ?        00:00:02 /usr/lib/virtualbox/VBoxHeadless -comment Ubuntu JeOS -startvm 1fff150e-cdcb-4502-9aac-09f0506c298d}}}

When a session is started with VBoxHeadless, the uuid in not shown as process info:

{{{
user      7541  6636 34 11:58 pts/1    00:00:02 /usr/lib/virtualbox/VBoxHeadless -startvm Ubuntu JeOS}}}

This (showing the uuid as prcess info) is much needed because otherwise it is virtually impossible to identify the session pid when there are multiple sessions running.

Sorry, layout is all garbled up. Next try (content is not changed):

I'm sorry, but I don't quite understand what you would like changed. If you start VBoxHeadless with the command

VBoxHeadless -startvm Ubuntu\ JeOS

then you will indeed see the process info that you described. If you start it as

VBoxHeadless -comment Ubuntu\ JeOS -startvm 1fff150e-cdcb-4502-9aac-09f0506c298d

then you will see the process info you would apparently like to see.
