Export fails without error in gui, disk image is not created

Postby LnxGnome » 2. Nov 2010, 16:08

Solaris 10 U8

VirtualBox-3.2.10-SunOS-r66523.pkg DL from VB website

I have a guest with a SCSI (lsi) controller and disk.
There is a SATA controller defined, but no disk attached. (ding ding ding ding)

The EXPORT wizard in the GUI will export this machine without a problem, but a disk image (from the scsi disk) is not created.

The CLI also fails.... (as expected)

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
# VBoxManage export VTS -o /tmp/VTS.ovf
Oracle VM VirtualBox Command Line Management Interface Version 3.2.10
(C) 2005-2010 Oracle Corporation
All rights reserved.

0%...FAILED
ERROR: Missing or bad extra config string in hard disk image: "controller=0;channel=1"
Details: code VBOX_E_NOT_SUPPORTED (0x80bb0009), component Appliance, interface IAppliance, callee
Context: "Write" at line 961 of file VBoxManageImport.cpp


Workaround: Delete the unused SATA controller.

BUG: The export wizard in the GUI doesn't trap the error.

Also BUG: Export cannot handle a SATA controller without any attached disks.

THANK YOU!!

2 years later and this still is not fixed. Was searching for hours for why this was failing.

4 Years Later and still the same issue

Fix work: remove unused Disk Controller

Progress state: VBOX_E_NOT_SUPPORTED
VBoxManage.exe: error: Appliance write failed
VBoxManage.exe: error: Missing or bad extra config string in hard disk image: "controller=0;channel=0"
