VirtualBox stop_vm init script does not work

Reported by: John Huong Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 2.2.2

Guest type: other Host type: other

Description (last modified by Frank Mehnert)

My VMs do not shutdown properly everything I reboot or shutdown the host machine.

I have noticed that the stop_vm function in the init script of vboxdrv does not really work.

I have made the following modification to the stop_vm function to make it work.

elif [ "$SHUTDOWN" = "savestate" ]; then
    begin_msg "Saving state of remaining VMs"
    for v in $VMS; do
        v=`echo ${v:1}`
        v=`echo ${v%\"}`
        sudo -H -u $i $VBOXMANAGE -nologo controlvm $v savestate

I am using VirtualBox 2.2.2. and Ubuntu 8.0.4.

This is already fixed in SVN. The reason for the problem was that the output format of VBoxManage list runningvms changed. Why do you need the sudo command? Stopping the VM should actually work as super user without doing sudo as we set VBOX_IPC_SOCKETID.

It seems with VirtualBox 3.0, I saw that on my machine it can't find the VMs unless I place in the sudo command to perform the savestate.
