Shared Folders doesn't honor guest OS DAC settings

Reported by: rfmacdonald Owned by:
Priority: minor Component: shared folders
Version: VirtualBox 4.0.2 Keywords: Honor DAC permissions
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Solaris


When using VBoxHeadless vrdp -off and set a mount point on the NFS shared (/export/home/COMMON_SHARE) we noticed that the files that are copied to NFS share from the guest OS show DAC root:root instead of the user DAC settings from the guest OS. The user account exists on both Host and Guest (same UID/GID) example testuser1/staff.

Guest OS: Windows Server 2003 STD R2 Host OS: Solaris 10 v10/09 Extension pack for 4.0.2 installed

Are you really talking about VirtualBox shared folders? I cannot see /export/home/COMMON_SHARE in the VBox.log file...

Providing additional information that was missing from the creation of Ticket #8789:

  • /export/home/COMMON_SHARE is auto-mounting with Full Access to all users.
  • Using VBoxHeadless -- startvm WIN2003_STD --vrde off and we are using rdesktop to connect to the VM.
  • From Guest OS (MS Windows 2003 STD R2) we can see the VirtualBox Shared Folder. When we create/save files the following DAC settings are applied to the Host OS (Solaris 10 v10/09):

-- Files 0600 root:root -- Directories 0700 root:root

Let me know if there are any test cases you would like me to run.
