VBoxManage storagectl - 'SCSI' can not be used as storage controller name

Reported by: Bernhard Thalmayr Owned by:
Component: VM control Version: VirtualBox 3.1.2
Keywords: storagectl SCSI Cc:
Guest type: other Host type: Solaris



VBoxManage storagectl <vmname> --name SCSI --add scsi

results in the controller name 'SCSI controller', not 'SCSI' as it should be.

Output from 'showvminfo'

Storage Controller Name (0):            SCSI Controller
Storage Controller Type (0):            LsiLogic

Using other names works fine, f.e. 'IDE'.

VBoxManage storagectl <vmname> --name IDE --add ide

results in the controller name 'IDE' as it should be.

Output from 'showvminfo'

Storage Controller Name (0):            IDE
Storage Controller Type (0):            PIIX4

Known issue. With VirtualBox 3.1, the default controller names are now "IDE Controller" etc. The settings conversion from old settings files is a little overmotivated, and converts the previous shorter controller names even for new config files.

Works with VBox 4.0.4.
