Ticket #2894 (closed defect: fixed)
Timing problems when starting with VBoxHeadless
|Reported by:||cboese||Owned by:|
|Version:||VirtualBox 2.0.6||Keywords:||script VBoxHeadless NS_ERROR_ABORT sleep timing|
When trying to start multiple VMs from a script with VBoxHeadless, for every VM I want to start I get the error
ERROR: 0 bytes read from child process [!] FAILED calling virtualBox->OpenSession (session, id) at line 669! [!] Primary RC = NS_ERROR_ABORT (0x80004004) - Operation aborted [!] Full error info present: false, basic error info present: false
When waiting for a second with sleep 1 this does not happen end everything works fine. I suspect other issues related to this, e.g. http://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/2530. You should mention in the documentation, to try the sleep.
I will try VBox 2.1 and report back if the problem still exists.
