#7227 closed enhancement (fixed)

VBoxManage xxx --variant should fail for unsupported variants => Fixed in SVN

Reported by: simohe Owned by:

Description (last modified by Frank Mehnert)

VDI images do not support --variant Split2G but the parameter is accepted and ignored. Fail instead with a clear error message.

The only format which supports Split2G seems to be VMDK. This is probably also true for the variants Stream and ESX.

concerned subcommands: createhd, clonehd and convertfromraw

As of version 4.0.10 VBox refuses to create such invalid medium variants.

VirtualBox 5.1.4 perfectly allows this command:

"C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\VBoxManage.exe" convertfromraw disk.raw
windows.vhd --format VHD --variant Split2G
