Comment 5 Amit Shah 2010-11-10 11:30:37 UTC
This looks like an issue with the guest OS.  Where do the ERROR lines you quoted come from?  Does this behaviour result in any loss of functionality or other bug in the guest operation?

Comment 6 Suqin Huang 2010-11-22 07:52:25 UTC
run it with autotest script, get it from the test result.
the same result when issue: systeminfo | find "Total Physical Memory" cmd in guest.

doesn't result in loss  of functionality or other bug in the guest operation.

Comment 7 Amit Shah 2010-11-22 09:11:31 UTC
In that case I'm fairly certain it's a bug in the guest and we can close this bug.
