VBoxManage cannot attach dvddrive to SATA controller => Fixed in SVN
|Reported by:||Rainmaker||Owned by:|
I created a new VM, using a SATA controller for storage. However, I am unable to attach a dvddrive to the new controller:
When trying to attach a dvddrive to a storage controller,
root@oread:/vmware# VBoxManage storageattach LDAPMaster1 --storagectl SATA1 --port 1 --device 0 --type dvddrive --medium emptydrive Oracle VM VirtualBox Command Line Management Interface Version 3.2.8 (C) 2005-2010 Oracle Corporation All rights reserved.
error: The Attachment is not supported by the Storage Controller: 'SATA1'
When attaching the drive to a IDE controller, it does work. The VirtualBox GUI is also able to attach the drive.
