Description (last modified by ramshankar) (diff)
I have a Solaris 5.10 Generic_141445-09 i86pc machine that is not updating to 4.0.12 properly for some reason. It seems to be a GA problem wrt shared folders. I have a shared folder mounted to /export/home/share.
If I boot the VM with 4.0.12 VB but 4.0.10 GA:
With the machine settings untouched, the VM boots fine and it can see its shared folder. See log VBox-A.
With the sole shared folder removed via the VMM, the VM reports on booting:
WARNING: sfprov_mount: vboxCallMapFolder() failed wvc:/system/filesystem/local:default: WARNING: /sbin/mountall -l failed: exist status 1 [...] svc:/system/filesystem/local:default: Method "/lib/svc/method/fs-local" failed with exit status 95. [...] /system/filesystem/local:default failed fatally: transitioned to maintenance (see 'svcs -xv' for details)
and the guest does not start X11. I can log into the console however. See log VBox-B.
If I boot the VM with 4.0.12 VB and 4.0.12 GA (installed via the above VBox-A boot), I get the same problem as above for the above B boot. See log VBox-C.
This is how I first came across the problem: rebooting after re-installing GA. I tried going back to a snapshot and reinstalling 4.0.12 GA (pkgrm SUNWvboxguest/pkgadd -G -d ./VBoxSolarisAdditions.pkg) several times with the same result on reboot.
