I've created an Ubuntu VM inside my Ubuntu using Virtual Machine Manager. I'm trying to mount a host directory in guest OS but it's not working. I used the instructions provided here: http://troglobit.com/blog/2013/07/05/file-system-pass-through-in-kvm-slash-qemu-slash-libvirt/. I have shared the host directory as "myshare".
The mount command completes silently:
mount -t 9p -o trans=virtio,version=9p2000.L,rw myshare /mnt/host
mount output looking promising:
myshare on /mnt/host type 9p (rw, trans=virtio,version=9p2000.L)
However, attempting to list the directory produces:
cd /mnt ls ls: cannot access host: Permission denied total 0 d???????? ? ? ? ? host
