Ticket #2914 (closed defect: fixed)
Shared folders not accessible by non-administrative users
|Reported by:||ondruska||Owned by:|
|Host type:||Mac OS X|
I am running VirtualBox 2.1.0 on Mac OS X host (10.5.6) and from my guest which is Windows XP Professional SP3 I cannot access shared folders as regular user. Shared folders are displayed in Network neighborhood as "VBOXSVRSoftware on VirtualBox Shared Folders" with target \VBOXSVR\Software and clicking at this will present error in dialog box: "\VBOXSVR\Software is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. The network name cannot be found."
If I map directory (as described in documentation) net use * \vboxsvr\Book (my share name is Book), I still get error: "Z:\ refers to a location that is unavailable..."
I can access shared folder only as user with administrator privileges. There I have no problems at all.
The guest additions installed are 2.1.0r41146.
