Virtual Machine not transferabel to other computer if snapshots exist

Reported by: martin.runge Owned by:
Priority: major Component: virtual disk
Version: VirtualBox 2.2.4 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: Linux
Host type: Windows

Description (last modified by aeichner) (diff)

The Disk snapshots are recorded in the machine configuration xml file and the differential disk images are stored with the machine where specified (global settings->machine storage path). But the Virtual Media Manager keeps its own config file somewhere in "Documents and Settings" or $HOME regardless what was specified as storage location for the virtual machine. This makes transferring of virtual machines nearly impossible as well as backups. They will not work without the correct config file for the virtual media manager as the order of snapshots is specified there.

The assignment of virtual disk filenames and uuid is a property of the virtual machine, not one of the local VirtualBox installation.

  • Tried with vmdk images

Fixed long ago by introducing the local media registry for each VM config.
