Symlinks in shared folders don't work after upgrading to 5.0.2

Reported by: fastest963 Owned by:
Component: shared folders Version: VirtualBox 5.0.2

Guest type: Linux Host type: Windows


I'm running CentOS 7 as a guest on a Windows 10 host machine. When using 5.0.0 or the test build, 5.0.1, symlinks work fine but once I upgraded to 5.0.2, they stopped working.

The symlink is relative to 2 directories up and was created in Windows 10 as follows: mklink /D rpclib ..\..\node-rpclib

I tried downgrading the Guest Additions from 5.0.2 to 5.0.0 and that didn't fix the problem so it seems related to the VirtualBox 5.0.2 program itself since after downgrading to 5.0.0 it went back to working

Here's the VBox.log from 5.0.0: Here's the VBox.log from 5.0.2:

Let me know if you need any more information.

The links are no longer broken but they are not the same as 5.0.0.

[vagrant@james-desktop node_modules]$ ll
lrwxrwxrwx 1 vagrant vagrant    0 Jul  1 07:22 rpclib -> ..\..\node-rpclib

In 5.0.3:

[vagrant@james-desktop node_modules]$ readlink -f rpclib

In 5.0.0:

[vagrant@james-desktop node_modules]$ readlink -f rpclib
