Split2G option is not supported and should give an error message => fixed in 3.0.12

Description

I'm assuming that the --variant Split2G option is not supported - see e.g.  http://www.virtualbox.de/ticket/3802

The defect is that it's accepted and createhd or clonehd operations appear to succeed. But then the resulting disk can't be used. E.g.:

C:\Program Files\Sun\xVM VirtualBox>VBoxManage clonehd T:\Systems\VirtualBox\VDI
\UbunTrek.vdi T:\Systems\VirtualBox\VDI\UbunTrek2G.vmdk --format VMDK --variant
Split2G --remember

Error: failed to clone hard disk. Error message: Could not create the clone hard
 disk 'T:\Systems\VirtualBox\VDI\UbunTrek2G.vmdk' (VERR_OUT_OF_RANGE) 

A similar error happens with createhd and clonehd --existing.

Commands with --variant Split2G should fail with an error message.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Summary changed from Split2G option is not supported and should give an error message to Split2G option is not supported and should give an error message => fixed in 3.0.12

What you observed is a bug which is fixed in 3.0.12. The "split2g not supported" statement was true for 3.0.0, after that the implementation was there but had an obscure bug.
