W2k3 guest time sync problems (VbglR3GetHostTime failed; rc2=VERR_IO_GEN_FAILURE)

Description (last modified by aeichner) (diff)

Virtualbox 3.2.8 running on Windows Server 2003 (32Bit) Guest: Windows Server 2003 (32Bit) GuestAdditions: 3.2.8

The time of the guest isn't synchronized. Especially after a savestate and resume the guest clock is far far away from the host clock. In the Log files I found:

00:01:32.296 Guest Log: VBoxService.exe: Error: VbglR3GetHostTime failed; rc2=VERR_IO_GEN_FAILURE

I've checked this with an earlier version of VIrtualbox (3.1.8, also GuestAdditions downgrades) but observe the same error. An test on Windows 7 host didn't show this behaviour, so I suggest it's an Server 2003 host issue.

Even with "VboxService -vvv" I didn't get more information about the timesync problem.

Attached the vbox.log

The issue is rather critical, cause the clock is so fast out of time, that an workaround with a very shot poll interval of the windows w32time daemon is necessary.

Not reproducible. Please attach a VBox.log file taken from a 3.2.10 session.
