Using MergeTo api to merge mediums in a parent child hierarchy(or snapshots)

Postby chirantar » 8. Jan 2019, 14:32

VboxSvc is crashing while using mergeTo API on Vbox version 5.1.24

My media registry entry is :
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
<MediaRegistry>
      <HardDisk uuid="{a9d1a5d3-cd0c-4169-9284-69b19f57b517}" location="Disk.vdi" format="VDI" type="Normal">

                            </HardDisk>
                          </HardDisk>
                        </HardDisk>
                      </HardDisk>
                    </HardDisk>
                  </HardDisk>
                </HardDisk>
              </HardDisk>
            </HardDisk>
        </HardDisk>
    </MediaRegistry>


My task is to merge all disk into one and then use that disk.

The disk attached to the VM is "Disk_10.vdi". And before merging, I am making sure that all conditions required to use mergTo API are met. My targetMedium is Disk.vdi and sourceMedium is Disk_10.vdi.
