Ticket #8446 (closed defect: worksforme)
VBoxManage snapshot $machine_uuid vminfo $snapshot_uuid doesn't work
|Reported by:||intuited||Owned by:|
|Version:||VirtualBox 3.2.8||Keywords:||snapshot showvminfo|
The VBoxManage docs state that the snapshot command's operations, like vminfo, can take either a name or a UUID.
Attempting to use a UUID gives errors like this:
$ VBoxManage snapshot $machine_uuid showvminfo $snapshot_uuid Oracle VM VirtualBox Command Line Management Interface Version 3.2.8_OSE (C) 2005-2010 Oracle Corporation All rights reserved. ERROR: Could not find a snapshot named '$snapshot_uuid' Details: code VBOX_E_OBJECT_NOT_FOUND (0x80bb0001), component Machine, interface IMachine, callee nsISupports Context: "FindSnapshot(Bstr(a->argv), snapshot.asOutParam())" at line 486 of file VBoxManageSnapshot.cpp
I haven't tried to use the other operations of snapshot yet; rumours (other bug reports and forum posts) suggest that the delete operation takes a UUID.
