Shared Folders / Vista Guest / Linux Host -> fixed in 1.6.2

Reported by: Stefan Becker Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 1.5.2
Keywords: Shared Folders Cc:
Guest type: other Host type: other

Description (last modified by Frank Mehnert)

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.

Please reopen if still relevant with VBox 4.2.6.

I am using Ubuntu 14.04 x64 and VirtualBox 4.3.34. My Vista SP2 Guest does not see the shared folder set up in Settings for the Guest.

The command "net use z: \vboxsvr\media\Data" returns "System error 67 has occurred. The network name cannot be found."

If I use "net use z:
vboxsvr\media\Data", I get "System error 53 has occurred. The network path was not found."

comment:11 by cscj01, 9 years ago

The double back slashes did not display in front of vboxsvr in the second command.

comment:12 by cscj01, 9 years ago

I have found the issue, and it is not a problem in VirtualBox. Somehow, the wrong version of Guest Additions was installed. This should be closed.
