#14652 new defect

Symbolic links cannot go up file tree on shared folder.

Component: shared folders Version: VirtualBox 5.0.4

Guest type: Linux Host type: Mac OS X


I've set up a vagrant VM with ubuntu/trusty64 on OS X.

Attempting to create symbolic links in the shared folder that use .. to reference a directory up the tree results in a protocol error (EPROTO).

Symlinks with absolute or relative paths without going up the tree still work.
