VB 3.0.8 Phantom Record of Attached CD Image

Reported by: ChrisW67 Owned by:
Priority: minor Component: virtual disk
Version: VirtualBox 3.0.8 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Linux

Description

Environment:

  • Linux 2.6.30 host (32-bit)
  • VBox 3.0.8 binary version
  • Windows XP SP3 or Vista client (32-bit)

Possibly related issue: #3071

Steps to reproduce:

  • Start a clean Windows client with no attached CD image
  • Attach a CD image (e.g. VBox Guest Additions)
  • Close the client using the host window close button and select "Power Off Machine" and "Revert to current snapshot"
  • Restart the client. Note that client starts without attached image.
  • Attempt to attach the same CD image
  • Cannot attach: Virtual Media Manager claims it is already attached (see screen shot)
  • Virtual Media Manager will not release the image (reports no error)
  • Attaching another image works: does not release the phantom attachment
  • Phantom attachment stays until VirtualBox modules are unloaded/reloaded

I have reproduced this several times on Windows XP and Vista clients and with old 3.x VMs and fresh 3.0.8 machines.

I have exactly the same problem.

But only with VirtualBox 3.0.8.

With 3.0.4 I can reattach the VBoxGuestAdditions.iso as many times I want.

  • Version: VirtualBox-3.0.8-53138-Linux_x86.run
  • Host: Debian GNU/Linux 5.0
  • Guest: Windows XP SP3
