Ticket #8213 (closed defect: duplicate)
VBoxManage modifyhd <filename> --immutable failure
|Reported by:||Perryg||Owned by:|
|Version:||VirtualBox 4.0.2||Keywords:||VBoxManage modifyhd|
I cloned (using VBox clonehd) three different formats of a working VM. Clone went smooth and created (1) *.vdi, (2) *.vhd, and (3) *.vmdk.
Next I tried to set the three to immutable using VBoxManage modifyhd <machine name> --type immutable.
All three returned the same error.
VBoxManage: error: Details: code VBOX_E_OBJECT_NOT_FOUND (0x80bb0001), component VirtualBox, interface IVirtualBox, callee nsISupports Context: "FindMedium(Bstr(pszFilenameOrUuid).raw(), enmDevType, pMedium.asOutParam())" at line 174 of file VBoxManageDisk.cpp
According to the help section I should be able to do this, but can't. I am attaching a text file of the process. I went so far as typing the absolute path as well, but that made no difference. I also tried the UUID but still nothing. The reason I am doing this is I had a user ask for help because they could not get it to work. Not something I do everyday. So where did I go wrong, or is something broken?
