Ticket #7773 (new defect)

Opened 8 years ago

USB does not work with NIS or LDAP login

Reported by: mir Owned by:
Priority: major Component: installer
Version: VirtualBox 3.2.10 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: Linux


When users are authenticated via NIS or LDAP and uid and gid are provided via NIS or LDAP ordinary users can not mount USB devices in guests onless the provided uid and/or gid are identical on the host and the provided uid and gid from NIS or LDAP.

The problem is that when a user is installing Virtualbox the installation script apparently scans the local group and passwd files and if user and group vbox* is not found then these users and groups are created locally and the information created is used in the following installation process.
