What happens if you should the the attach via the GUI?
Also, the --target
parameter appears to be the base
vdi, not the differencing
What happens if you specify the differencing disk?
Well in my world, when I create a new virtual machine I attach a disk over iSCSI that virtualbox can use for storing data. When I do a snapshot I assume that virtualbox will take care of the innerworkings for me, I.e I should not need to do anything other then create a snapshot and then do what I want to do with the machine. If I want to revert back I simply tell virtualbox to revert the snapshot and all my changes are undone.
My command above was run when I created the machine, as far as I'm aware I cannot attach an iSCSI disk in the gui without first making the connection with the command line.
Are you saying that after I create a snapshot I need to disconnect the LUN and try to Attach the snapshot? cause that sounds crazy to me
