Long time no post.
Well because I want to test a lot of things, well I work with virtual box. Well but because I need more then one server on my virtual network I have to use same image more time to create more instances. However if you want to add another instance with same vdi/vbox file you will have the error.
“Trying to open virtual machine located in … vbox
“Trying to open a VM config ‘…vbox’ witch has the same UUID as an existing virtual machine.”
Well unfortunately there is no short fix with some dialog box to hit it. So to fix this you have to go on folder where is your virtbualbox installed if is not in default directory as
And run this
VBoxManage.exe internalcommands sethduuid c:\path\MyVM.vdi
Now you can hit new button chose what you want and on third section just pick up “use an existing virtual hard drive file” and pick this c:\path\MyVM.vdi
Hope will help someone.
