Ticket #3458 (new defect)
Shared Folders failing on access
|Reported by:||BearTM||Owned by:|
|Version:||VirtualBox 2.1.4||Keywords:||Access Failure|
Ubuntu 8.10 64-Bit host, Windows XP SP3 32-Bit guest.
When accessing shared files on the shared folder, often the shared folders file access fails. This includes directory browsing, file access, file deletion, or other operations. Other times, the access works fine. The issue appears random - but generally occurs after inactivity. Shared folders have been shared as a Mapped Drive under XP.
I have disabled the Mapped Drive timeout ( http://support.microsoft.com/kb/297684 = "net config server /autodisconnect:-1"), and have also added 'vboxsvr' to the hosts file as 127.0.0.1 to try to solve the problem - no success.
Accessing files returns "unknown error occurred while accessing [file]". Refreshing the directory after this failure results in "E:\ is not accessible. The request is not supported." Refreshing the directory after a 'timeout', then the directory is displayed, and files are accessible again.
Logfile attached immediately after this issue occurred. VM was still running and active.
