Is this a normal info?

5.40 Theory -dev and Production Theory seem to have been playing nicely together overnight and today but I would still like to see if, on finishing, the last attached -dev allows the .vdi to be released. It was the transition where there was no -dev attached but the vdi was not released, and subsequent tasks could not re-attach to it, was where I previously had postponements. As is typical when I want to watch that, I have a task that is at 60% after 14hrs so it'll be tomorrow evening before I can watch what happens.

Boinc 7.20.2
VBox 6.1.36

It's not BOINC or vboxwrapper not releasing the vdi.
It is VBoxSVC.exe keeping last used vdi's in memory.
As long as that process keeps running, because of other VM's running or the GUI of VirtualBox Manager open, the unused vdi's will be shown in Virtual Media Manager.

The last vboxwrapper v26205, in use now on LHC@home Development for all three vbox-apps, had no issues since released here as test.

Ah, ok. I've not been paying attention recently, just been letting run with the VBox window closed.
Really we're waiting for VBox themselves for a proper fix.

Message 7708 - Posted: 2 Aug 2022, 5:18:58 UTC - in response to Message 7707.

No, we don't.
Vboxwrapper now includes 2 workarounds:


1st workaround follows the advice given in the virtualbox ticket system years ago:
https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/18296
As you can see there they don't plan to change something on their side.


2nd workaround takes care of a bug in virtualbox which occasionally writes the 'multiattach' attribute to a disk entry in the 'global media store' although that attribute is not allowed there.
This must be handled in vboxwrapper to make it work with widely distributed unpatched virtualbox versions.

Since at least 3 calls to vboxmanage in a row are required vboxwrapper tries to resolve this issue only once (per VM).
If it fails again during a 2nd run it will report this condition back and fail the task.
This is by intention and may happen very rarely on extremely loaded computers starting lots of VMs concurrently.

Laurence,
for native Theory, can we change from runc to apptainer Container?
