Ticket #7367 (reopened defect)
VBoxManage startvm command fails if no gui is available
|Reported by:||stoxx||Owned by:|
Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
when no X environment is present (ssh shell, no gui started on host, etc), this error message is presented:
tobo@elena:~$ VBoxManage startvm 2ct2 Oracle VM VirtualBox Command Line Management Interface Version 3.2.8 (C) 2005-2010 Oracle Corporation All rights reserved.
Waiting for the VM to power on... ERROR: The virtual machine '2ct2' has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 0 Details: code NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005), component Machine, interface IMachine, callee tobo@elena:~$
which is far from elegant. Correct behaviour would be to require --type vrdp or such.
this is opensolaris host 111b or such.
please contact me at my registered address if further info is necessary.
