vboxmanage guestcontrol execute does not provide user groups => Fixed in SVN

Reported by: Paolo Virtual Owned by:

Version: VirtualBox 4.0.0 Keywords:

Host type: other

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

If a command is executed via "vboxmanage guestcontrol execute /usr/bin/xterm ...", the user groups are not set correctly within the guest. For example, if I login locally inside the VM, all groups are present

in VM: $ id uid=1000(vm) gid=1000(vm) groups=20(dialout),29(audio)

If I execute the same command via vboxmanage, the groups section is missing.

$ id uid=1000(vm) gid=1000(vm)
