Return code to start VM is unreliable => Fixed in SVN

Reported by: Freek de Kruijf Owned by:
Component: VM control Version: VirtualBox 4.1.2
Keywords: startvm retrun code Cc:
Guest type: Linux Host type: Linux


I have a shell script which runs as root to start a VM for a normal user. Since the newest version of VirtualBox, 4.1.2 the return code is unreliable. Sometimes it returns a failure where the VM is successfully started.

The script looks like this:

    CMD="/usr/bin/VBoxManage -nologo $@"
    su - freek -c "$CMD"
vboxmanage startvm ktmhnewb -type vrdp 2>&1 3>&1 || ERROR=1
[ $ERROR -eq 1 ] && echo "VM did not start"
[ $ERROR -eq 1 ] && exit 1
