Unable to restore snapsnots "VERR_ALREADY_EXISTS"

Postby NiGhtMarEs0nWaxx » 10. Feb 2010, 23:30

Hi, i initially started a thread on the OSE board, but it's not very active so i moved it to here. don't delete this please thinking it's a double post, thank you.

ok for a while now i have been unable to restore snapshots. It started when i had problems with 3d acceleration, every now and again gnome would crash when cpu usage maxed out. this happened once when i was restoring a snapshot, which i think may have corrupted the config file. Although i could run the machine fine it wouldn't revert to any snapshots, so i deleted all but the first snapshot and setup the machine again, but i am still unable to revert the current machine state.

Could someone take a look at the following please? i would be forever grateful.. well maybe not forever because that would be impossible, but i would be grateful for a whole afternoon. :wink:


Ubuntu Karmic Host.
Windows XP SP2 Guest.
virtualbox 3.0.8_OSE r53138.

The offending machine is called 'XP Personal,' here is the basic snapshot structure:

Base_XP.vdi
.....{9a7e20d6-9af5-4089-874f-5f6f32fb06a5}.vdi
..........{012c56aa-88de-44d6-ba91-5b0795785539}.vdi


i have also noticed extra files within the snapshot folder (which i thought i cleared out after reverting back to the first snapshot.)
i have no idea what they are but they take up over a gig of space.

{f683f0f9-5fe0-4e23-93d9-7ab0a53c43a1}.sav
{a3cfa0b8-9928-4c5b-b946-cbae754fc2bd}.sav
{ea9a16b1-ba10-4889-a77d-026075662629}.vdi // seems to be a detached snapshot.




Error message:

Failed to discard the current state of the virtual machine XP Personal.
Could not copy the state file '/media/VB_MountPoint/SnapShots/{a3cfa0b8-9928-4c5b-b946-cbae754fc2bd}.sav' to '/media/VB_MountPoint/SnapShots/{f683f0f9-5fe0-4e23-93d9-7ab0a53c43a1}.sav' (VERR_ALREADY_EXISTS).

Re: Unable to restore snapsnots "VERR_ALREADY_EXISTS"

Postby MarkCranness » 11. Feb 2010, 01:35

Try this:
  • If the VM is currently in 'Saved' state then start it up then shut it down properly.
  • Deleting file {f683f0f9-5fe0-4e23-93d9-7ab0a53c43a1}.sav and then try the Revert again.
{f683f0f9-5fe0-4e23-93d9-7ab0a53c43a1}.sav
This is an old 'Save machine state' file for the VM.

{a3cfa0b8-9928-4c5b-b946-cbae754fc2bd}.sav
When you took snapshot 'Ready To Go', the VM was running. VirtualBox saved the VM state (virtual RAM) to this SAV file. When you are trying to Revert to the snapshot, VirtualBox tries to copy the VM state as at the snapshot (a3cfa0b8-9928-4c5b-b946-cbae754fc2bd) to the current VM state (f683f0f9-5fe0-4e23-93d9-7ab0a53c43a1) so that the VM will then be in 'Saved' state (it was when the snapshot was taken).

{ea9a16b1-ba10-4889-a77d-026075662629}.vdi // seems to be a detached snapshot.
Yes. Use File>Virtual Media Manager... to remove and delete this (expand the tree for Base_XP.vdi to find it).

Is your base hard disk (Base_XP.vdi) Immutable or Write-through? (Virtual Media Manager will show this, or VBoxManage showhdinfo).

Re: Unable to restore snapsnots "VERR_ALREADY_EXISTS"

ok thanks, its working now, much appreciated.

but from what i gather from what you were saying is that virtualbox was using my most recent 'saved state' snapshot, to try and overwrite a previous 'saved state' snapshot, am i right? that's the sav files, as opposed to the normal snapshot vdi files, is that correct?

if i got you correctly, is there a particular reason why that could of happened? can i have only one sav file or multiple?

i just want to be able to sort it out quickly as possible if it happens again :P

Thank you mate.

VirtualBox was trying to copy the 'saved state' (*.SAV) from the snapshot (that you were Restoring), to the current, live 'saved state' file.

If you look in the machine xml, you might see that 'XP Personal' has uuid="{f683f0f9-5fe0-4e23-93d9-7ab0a53c43a1}", which is the same number that the offending SAV file had. Therefore it was the 'saved state' for the current live VM.

I don't know why that file was still there. If the VM was not actually in 'Saved' state (shows a green arrow in the GUI), then that file should have been deleted.
There will be a SAV file for the current live VM IF it is currently saved, and there will be one SAV file for each snapshot, IF the VM was running when the snapshot was taken. Only delete them when you are sure they should not be there.
