How can I start VirtualBox on a remote machine and log out from the terminal?


Hi.

I'm trying to start a virtual machine on a remote machine and log out from the console. Using nohup with both VBoxHeadless and VBoxManage to start the virtual machine is useless because they spawn other processes and if I try to log out I'm still blocked. Do you know any way to accomplish this?

Thanks,
Enrico.

Can you post the whole nohup command line you try that fails ?

Of course jlliagre.

I first tried with
Code:
nohup VBoxHeadless -s winsrv2003 &
and when I exit the shell the shell waits for the VBox process to terminate. If, for example, I shutdown the VB from an RDP connexion, the shell finally exits. The same thing happens if I try with
Code:
nohup VBoxManage startvm winsrv2003 -type vrdp &
Thanks,
Enrico
