Hi, When I upgrade to version 2.1 from version 2.0.6. I cannot do snapshots of a running Virtual machine.

This is running on a Kubuntu 7.10 host. Windows and Debian/Kubuntu guest OS.

If the machine is powered off. I can do a snapshot fine.

My VDI and Machine directories are changed from the default locations.

I get the following error

A session for the machine 'DebianServer' is currently open (or being closed).

Unable to reproduce this problem. I can take a snapshot fine. Can you attach here a log file when you get this error?

Hi, The Snapshot feature runs fine when you invoke it from the Machine menu of the running VM. The problem is actually when you invoke it from the Sun xVM Virtualbox window.

See screenshot attached.

Sorry for not doing a bit more research on this. I think it the same issue as ticket 2240
