Ticket #2851 (closed defect: fixed)
32 and 64 bit linux hosts with shared /home repeat registration requests
|Reported by:||TrevorPH||Owned by:|
I have attempting to migrate to running a 64 bit linux and have Centos 5.2 64 and 32 bit editions installed in parallel on separate root file systems but sharing the same /home directory. Every time I switch distributions and start VirtualBox it repeats its registration request. I have saved a copy of ~/.VirtualBox/VirtualBox.xml between the two systems and compared them and the difference is the addition on 8 x 0 at the end of one line in the file.
- <ExtraDataItem name="GUI/RegistrationData" value="0054007...c00790065007300000000d0117a29"/>
+ <ExtraDataItem name="GUI/RegistrationData" value="0054007...c007900650073d0117a29"/>
Seems the registration data has a 32 bit or 64 bit number tagged on the end which causes this repeat registration request to occur.
