Ticket #9654 (new defect)
Implementing Shared Folders breaks network connection for Guest OS (Windows 7)
|Reported by:||allencp||Owned by:|
Operating VirtualBox in Solaris 10, update 9, with Windows 7 SP1 as the Guest OS (guest additions are installed). When creating a shared folder to the Guest OS, all network connectivity is lost and does not return with the removal of the shared folder. Further, a simple reboot of the Guest OS will not fix the problem. Must completely shutdown Guest OS and restart before connectivity is restored. Even though network connectivity is lost, access to the shared folder is functional.
We are operating the Guest OS with a bridged adapter. Do not experience the problem when using a NAT network.
