VMDK permissions problems

Description

  1. Virtualbox aborts machine start without message if readpermission is missing on underlying file.

Example if ddd.img had been

-rw-------  1 root  wheel  102400000 Jan 20 23:18 ddd.img

In the example below.

  1. Virtualbox allows machine start despite missing write permissions.

See below.

$ ls -l ddd*
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  102400000 Jan 20 23:18 ddd.img
-rw-------  1 baf   baf          655 Jan 20 23:17 ddd.vmdk

$ cat ddd.vmdk
