This article explains how to prevent extra "/bin/bash -i -c which VBoxManage”  processes from spawning when the Simulator is started

 

Issue:

Extra "/bin/bash -i -c which VBoxManage" processes being started

 

Environment: 

All supported DevTest Windows, UNIX and Linux platforms

 

Cause:

The Simulator is spawning off extra VBoxManage processes when the Simulator is started regardless if you are doing Mobile testing or not.

 

Resolution:

  1. 1. Stop your Simulator (or reboot and don’t start it to begin with)


2. You will have to kill all of the $VBoxManage processes (More than One?)


3. Update the local.properties file and add this property:


VBOXMANAGE_CMD=" "


4. Start the Simulator.


5. Verify no extra VBoxManage processes start.
