Ticket #7731 (closed defect: fixed)
Impossible to delete "last/single" snapshot => Fixed in SVN
|Reported by:||sergiomacedo||Owned by:|
|Version:||VirtualBox 3.2.10||Keywords:||snapshot delete|
While doing some tests for a backup procedure, I was "greeted" with the following message: # VBoxManage snapshot guest-vbox delete backup [...] 0%...FAILED Error: snapshot operation failed. Error message: Snapshot 'backup' of the machine 'guest-vbox' cannot be deleted while a VM is running, as this case is not implemented yet. You can delete the snapshot when the VM is powered off
The snapshot was taken with the VM running. Then I tried simply to remove it and got the above message. After some testing, I discovered that the error ocurred only when trying to remove the "last" snapshot on a tree. I.e., after snapshot "backup", I created snapshot "backup2" and was able to remove "backup". However, when I tried to remove "backup2" I got the same error above, as "backup2" was now the "last" or "only" snapshot.
Is there any workaround for this? I mean, beside "savestate-ing" the VM before the delete (all this exercise is to avoid losing access to the services provided by the VM).
The VBoxLog does not register anything, so I'm not attaching it.
Thanks for any help/suggestion.
