Ticket #4853 (closed defect: fixed)
ActiveState perl GetUNCName doesn't return Windows UNC path => Fixed in SVN/3.0.8
|Reported by:||paulg_ca||Owned by:|
I have run into what I think is a bug, I am starting to use VirtualBox to test Windows XP deployments and the software we use is written in perl and it makes a call to Win32::NetResource::GetUNCName() which should return the UNC name when it is given a network drive letter. Unfortunately it fails within the VirtualBox hosted guest OS.
I tried with ActivePerl 184.108.40.2066 and 220.127.116.115 and I get the same results.
Here are the results.
Real Windows XP SP3 C:\>Z:\testunc2.pl Calling GetUNCName z: success $ret = \pcserver\homes
VirutalBox Windows XP SP3 C:\>Z:\testunc2.pl Calling GetUNCName z: $ret = Unable to GetUNCName for z:: The network name cannot be found at y:\testunc2.pl line 21.
I have attached a test perl script.
Products Involved VirtualBox 3.0.4 Host OS: OpenSolaris 2009.06 Guest OS: Windows XP SP3 Perl: ActiveState 18.104.22.1686 and 22.214.171.1245 Deployment software: Unattended ( http://unattended.sourceforge.net/)
