Ticket #6150 (closed defect: duplicate)
Bidirectional Clipboard copy stops working eventually, Win client to Fedora host, then both ways. -> duplicate of #5266

|Version:||VirtualBox 3.1.2||Keywords:||shared clipboard copy fails|
This is similar in symptoms to ticket #5266, except here, host is Linux and Guest is Windows
Host: Fedora 12 64-bit - 188.8.131.52-174.2.3.fc12.x86_64 #1 SMP Mon Jan 18 19:52:07 UTC 2010 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Guest: Windows7 32-bit (single guest)
Guest additions are installed and guest rebooted afterword. Shared clipboard copies work in both directions, the after a random number of hours, guest-to-host copying will fail, and sometimes copying both ways will fail
Rebooting guest always fixes it for a while, but is impractical as an ongoing solution.
This seems to be a known bug with Windows Host and linux client, but I don't see many bugs or posts about the other way around.
Attempted to restart the service in Windows 7 but with no improvement. Should I be restarting something in Fedora?
What logs can I provide and from which host?
Steps attempted inside Windows client: Recently when guest-to-host failed again I tried restarting VirtualBox Guest Additions Service (system32\VBoxService.exe)
-Control Panel\System and Security\Administrative Tools -Services -Highlight VirtualBox Guest Additions Service -- choices are Stop the Service or Restart the Service
Click on either. You get this shutdown timeout message:
"Windows could not stop the VirtualBox Guest Additions Service service on Local Computer Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion"
Now Service Manager shows it as having no Status (not running) and your only option is now Start the Service
Click Start the service. It appears to start, but guest-to-host clipboard is still broken.
