"VBoxManage controlvm $name savestate" failes with "NS_ERROR_INVALID_ARG"

Reported by: martin_t Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 3.2.10

Guest type: other Host type: Linux



Basic info:

Host 32-bit Debian Linux, Dell Precision M4500. Virtualbox 3.2.10
Guest Win7 (32bit).

Problem: I try to save the state of my running guest from terminal because my X server screwed up (which might be another bug). I googled out that by calling

VBoxManage controlvm Win7 savestate

I should be able to save the state of the running VM. When I issue the command I get the following response:

mnt@localhost:~$ VBoxManage -nologo list runningvms
"Win7" {e7f536be-16f6-4a98-b3cb-cd8939917b58}
mnt@localhost:~$ VBoxManage controlvm Win7 savestate

ERROR: code NS_ERROR_INVALID_ARG (0x80070057) - Invalid argument value (extended info not available)
Context: "SaveState(progress.asOutParam())" at line 165 of file VBoxManageControlVM.cpp

The outcome of the command is that the Virtual Machine is shut down instead of the state is saved.
