Ticket #20168 (new defect)

Opened 22 months ago

Linux guest / Mac host - uid option stopped working

Reported by: Richlv Owned by:
Component: shared folders Version: VirtualBox 6.1.18
Keywords: ownership Cc:
Guest type: Linux Host type: Mac OS X

Description

MacOS Catalina host, OpenSUSE Tumbleweed guest.

With Virtualbox 6.1.14, manually mounting a shared folder worked correctly with the "uid" option (owner of directories and files being set to the specified user).

After upgrading VBox, this parameter stopped working - mounted data is now owned by root. Latest test done with VBox 6.1.18 host and 6.1.18 guest tools.

> sudo mount -t vboxsf -o uid=$UID,gid=100 macroot ~/files/macroot
> ls -ld /home/rich/files/macroot/Users/
drwxr-xr-x 1 root root 192 sep 22 00:27 /home/rich/files/macroot/Users/

This was discussed in SUSE bug  https://bugzilla.suse.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1180761, with a working fix for Linux host in place - but apparently not working as expected on a Mac host.
