I'm trying to use Virtualbox's shared folder functionality, and I can't get the automount folder feature to work.
I've followed directions in various SO/AskUbuntu questions, and it seems like I set up shared folders correctly.
Mounting the folder with
sudo mount -t vboxsf vbox_shared /media/vbox_shared works, including write access.
I've installed Virtualbox Guest Additions, and
lsmod | grep vboxguest returns
vboxguest 294912 2 vboxsf,vboxvideo.
sudo usermod -G vboxsf -a <username> to add myself to the group.
I've restarted the virtual machine.
In Virtualbox settings, I've set Folder Path:
C:\Users\<myusername>\vbox_shared, Folder Name:
vbox_shared, Auto-mount and Make Permanent are checked.
Host is Windows 7 Enterprise, Guest is Ubuntu Server 17.10, Virtualbox 5.2.6.
What else could be the cause of this?
