vboxsvc - VirtualBox SMF service wrapper / News: Recent posts

Release 0.15 is published

Main new feature of this release is the ability of vbox.sh to create snapshots of ZFS datasets backing the VM and/or its data. Datasets containing the VM config files, VirtualBox snapshot files, and HDD image files, can be found automatically. Other datasets (such as raw ZVOLs) can be listed in a special SMF attribute.

Other new features include the "poweroff" command-line action ("pressing" acpipowerbutton first, then calling poweroff if ACPI fails), and a timeout override for poweroff and reboot command-line actions.... read more
