Ticket #4770 (new defect)
VBoxManage clonehd: inacurate progressbar + cannot be stopped
|Reported by:||AntiMatter||Owned by:|
A VDI has been created by VitualBox 3.04 x64 on Ubuntu 9.04 x64. The VDI is copied on an external USB drive.
The Drive is then connected to a laptop using WinXP SP3 + VirtualBox 3.04. The VDI is not registered in this host WinXP. I would like to clone the VDI using the command
F:\MyVM> "C:\Program Files\Sun\xVM VirtualBox\VBoxManage.exe" clonehd OriginalVM.vdi F:\MyVM\NewTarget.vdi --format VDI
Issue 1: When it started, if I interrupted the process by Ctrl-C. The command line returned to the prompt. But the cloning process still continue in the background. The reason I want to interrupt is because I forgot to specify the absolute path for the NewTarget.vdi
Issue 2: I rerun the VBoxManage.exe command above. The progression bar is frozen at 0%...10%...20%... But the process seems to be running OK in the background. WIndows Explorer always shows the NewTarget.vdi at 7K during the whole time
When it finished (roughly 15 minutes later). Then the display becomes 0%...10%...20%...30%...40%...50%...60%...70%...80%...90%...100% Clone hard disk created in format 'VDI'. UUID: 77114f9b-7b54-4080-ad81-e17b7a0099fd
After that Windows Explorer also show the correct final size of the VDI.
