Linux kernel warnings when trying to remount a shared folder
|Reported by:||spectre||Owned by:|
When I try to remount a shared folder on a Linux guest, it fails and the guest kernel issues several warnings that may indicate that some problem has occured. The steps to reproduce are as follows:
First I mount a shared folder "vbshare" to /mnt/shared:
#> mount -t vboxsf vbshare /mnt/shared
So far so good. Now I try to remount it read only:
#> mount -t vboxsf -o remount,ro vbshare /mnt/shared /sbin/mount.vboxsf: mounting failed with the error: Invalid argument
In the system log on the guest there are several warnings triggered in the kernel during the execution of sf_read_super_26() (see the attached system.log file for details):
- WARNING: at /build/buildd/linux-2.6.38/fs/sysfs/dir.c:455 sysfs_add_one+0xc8/0xf0()
Hardware name: VirtualBox sysfs: cannot create duplicate filename '/devices/virtual/bdi/vboxsf-vbshare'
- kobject_add_internal failed for vboxsf-vbshare with -EEXIST, don't try to register things with the same name in the same directory.
- And 3 more.
At the end, the log shows that sf_read_super_aux() returned -EINVAL (-22) and mounting failed indeed.
