Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

I have noticed a Regression with Shared Folders in Vista Guests.

Host 1: Suse 10.3 64 Bit / VB OSE of 19.10.07, NAT Adapter Host 2: Suse 10.3 32 Bit / VB 1.52, Bridge

Guest: Vista Business, Driver AMD PC Net from Additions, Guest Additions in Version 1.5.2.

Shared Folders doesnt appear in Network Explorer.

"net use x: \vboxsvr\tmp" for Share "/tmp" gives the output;

"Systemerror 67. Networkname not found" (Translated from German).

A Samba Share, Printer via IPP, Scanner via SaneTawin and Internet in IE in same Guest are working without Problems.

In Version 1.4.0 same thing with Shared Folders was working. The Regression is since Version 1.5.0.

Do you need more informations?

Answer myself:

See Ticket #649, Post from 19.10.07:

Its a problem with Admin rights, Vista ACL.

You have to start a cmd-shell through the context menu / start as admin. Then "net use" command works, but with next reboot the connection isnt working again.

Correction: With "net use" as admin you cannot access folders as users.

But then you can delete the folder as admin and create i new as user.

Something stupid.

I am having this problem with a Windows 7 guest on a Linux host with just upgraded Virtualbox 3.2.12. I am currently running the guest with UAC disabled to get it to work.

It all worked fine on 3.2.10. So the regression crept back in after that.
