Ticket #6439 (closed defect: fixed)
VBoxManage startvm does not shut down VM properly.
|Reported by:||nh2||Owned by:|
When I start via VBoxManage startvm "MyVM", it starts up once, but afterwards, I cannot start any instance of VirtualBox via "VBoxManage startvm", "VirtualBox --startvm" and not even the "VirtualBox" GUI.
So it seems "VBoxManage startvm" does not shut down the VM properly (VBoxSVC keeps running) while the other two methods work.
I did not have the problem in Virtualbox 2.
To conclude, this bug breaks automatic startup for many users. See http://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=28274 for more people reporting that problem.
