Monitoring user's VM via API as LOCAL SYSTEM

Postby DmitryAkaLBVF » 1. Nov 2017, 14:20

Hello!

I need to monitor and interact with virtual machines (running under a user account) from my own Windows service running from the LOCAL SYSTEM account.
Now my service will see all the virtual machines in the MachineState_PoweredOff state when they are actually running.
Can someone help me solve this problem? Can I solve this problem by fixing the DCOM configuration?

My service communicates with VMs via VirtualBox COM library.

Regards, Dmitry.

It cannot be done at the VirtualBox level. You'll need to write some kind of 3rd party tool for it.
Hyperbox - Virtual Infrastructure Manager - https://kamax.io/hbox/
