Ticket #3087 (closed defect: fixed)
"ostype" IDs case changed between 2.0.6 and 2.1.0 -> fixed in SVN
|Reported by:||edrandall||Owned by:|
We have some developed some .bat scripts using VBoxManage to automatically set up VMs for developers.
In 2.0.6 the "-ostype" argument to the "modifyvm" command accepted "fedoracore" or "redhat". Now in 2.1.0 it only accepts "Fedora" or "RedHat", and gives an error if you use the lowercase version.
When these IDs changed we had support calls from the developers because the script fails and we have to issue a new version - except some developers have upgraded their VirtualBox version and others have not, making the task doubly difficult!
Please could you keep the supported "ostype" IDs consistent and relatively unchanging, perhaps make them case-insensitive - they are an ID after all, the description can have the nice mixed-case text.
- Summary changed from "ostype" IDs case changed between 2.0.6 and 2.1.0 to "ostype" IDs case changed between 2.0.6 and 2.1.0 -> fixed in SVN
