Virtual Box Shared Folder between WinXP host and Ubuntu guest

Although Virtual Box provided an option of shared folder, it is not straightforward to use this shared folder. It took me some searches on VirtualBox forum to find it how Ubuntu guest OS can access the shared Folder on WinXP host OS.

1. Add folder(s) to shared folder menu.

 

It is important to write down the folder names at this step. 

 

2. Boot guest system, open a terminal and type in the following commands
 

sudo mkdir /mnt/tao_xp

sudo mount.vboxsf TAO /mnt/tao_xp

The shared folder would be accessible now: read & write!

You have no idea how much of a help you have been. There are a zillion posts on how to do it for Ubuntu as the host os but not for ubuntu as guest os. Thanks a ton!! You are a lifesaver!!

Your a Legend, thanks, simple to the point how-to instructions that worked first time. Not like the help in virtual box.

Cheers!

My guest OS is OpenSolaris, it's seems do not support . vbboxsf.:

bash-3.2# mount . vboxsf win_share /mnt/share/
Usage:
mount [-v | -p]
mount [-F FSType] [-V] [current_options] [-o specific_options]
{special | mount_point}
mount [-F FSType] [-V] [current_options] [-o specific_options]
special mount_point
mount -a [-F FSType ] [-V] [current_options] [-o specific_options]
[mount_point ...]

You should remove the spaces between mount, ., and vboxsf. If that still doesn't work, this should work:
mount -t vboxsf win_share /mnt/share

Make sure the name of the folder and the share are not equal, otherwise you get a protocol error

Posted by Martin on November 04, 2008 at 12:44 PM EST #

it still can not work.
Guest OS is OpenSolaris, it's seems do not support . vbboxsf.
Please check virtualbox manual. Share fored do not support on guest OS Opensolaris currently.

have you installed the gues-os additions?
only i noticed i had to have those installed before i could use mount.vboxsf .

Posted by tommie on November 05, 2008 at 09:45 PM EST #

thanks for this, i have the shared folder successfully working. however I would like to have the folder enabled when I start the machine. so I don't have to run the second command every time I want to share a file.

is there some startup file I can edit? and is there a way around the need for an admin password as implied by the sudo?

thanks!

Posted by Richard on November 21, 2008 at 04:56 PM EST #

@Richard: You can see all the startup mounts in /etc/fstab

@Original Post: Thanks for your post. It is indeed very rare to find such a search result with Ubuntu as guest and XP as host. It is very handy! I've don't have the Shared folders working: The mount.vboxfs gives the following error-message: command not found. I also cannot find this command in the repositories... What am I forgetting? Can anybody help?

Thank you VERY MUCH for this. It's strange.. the entire time I was thinking that the host starts up some sort of virtual samba server for the guest.

Again thanks :D

Hi
I'm kind of new to virtualization and don't know how to set up shared folders...
I have Vista Ultimate as a Host and Ubuntu as guest OS.
I tried exchanging "xp" for "vista" but that doesn't seem to work...
If anybody know how to share the folders I'd be truly gratefull

Posted by Simon on March 26, 2009 at 11:30 PM EST #

I followed your instructions but receive the following error:

/sbin/mount.vboxsf: mounting failed with the error: No such device

Posted by Neil Tomlinson on April 10, 2009 at 04:44 PM EST #

Sorry, I forgot to add; any help would be much appreciated, thanks in advance.

Posted by Neil Tomlinson on April 10, 2009 at 04:45 PM EST #

I figured it out...
I first created a directory as mentioned above using:
cd /media
sudo mkdir shared
and then just this line
Sudo mount -t vboxsf music /media/shared

where "music" is the name of folder specified in Virtualbox and "shared" is the folder you created...
I hop this helps....

virtualbox shared folder

Posted by mart on August 13, 2009 at 10:16 PM EST #

All the commands seemed to work, but (being unfamiliar with the Linux system), I am unable to fund anywhere on the virtual desktop to access the shared folder once created in the terminal....

Any help?

Posted by Rob Clarke on August 24, 2009 at 10:05 PM EST #

If you use Linux(redhat,ubantoo) as a guest o/s, first install VBox Guest Additions driver in Linux.
Because, after you install this additions driver, you use "mount.vboxsf" command.
For installation driver mount this "VBoxGuestAdditions_2.0.4.iso" & install "VBoxLinuxAdditions-x86.run" through terminal. It's dependency "gcc & kernel-devel".
(1) Add folder(s) to shared folder menu, share folder name like, "ABC".
\*\* login as a root user -->
(2)open terminal & then fire command "mkdir /mnt/xyz" "mount.vboxsf ABC /mnt/xyz"
\*\* login as a normal user -->
(2)open terminal & then fire command "sudo mkdir /mnt/xyz" & "sudo /sbin/mount.vboxsf ABC /mnt/xyz"

Works 100%, just make sure you've installed the guest additions, as mount.vboxsf is part of that package. Not sure if this will auto mount every boot, but i bet thers a startup script somewhere that this can be added to for that

4.you should be lucky

This is great, but how do you shared the other way around.
I want Win7 host to access Ubuntu guest shared folder. I downloaded a movie on Ubuntu guest and will like to copy that movie to my win7 host. Any help would be appreciated.

@escalera

The shared folder works both ways. Mount the folder to your guest system, i.e., Ubuntu. Then just copy the downloaded files to that folder. They will be available also on the host, i.e., Win 7 operating system.

How can this mounting procedure be automated properly?

If I add the following line to ~/.bashrc,
sudo mount.vboxsf TAO /mnt/tao_xp
sometimes I'm forced to type root password when
I open a new terminal from the desktop.
Someone also said it is a bad idea to mount within ~/.bashrc because the folder will be mounted repeatedly.

Any suggestion about the proper way to mount shared folder automatically ?

thanks it work but with little modification which i have just done.

Name Share folder in Virtual Box (as you want) in my case its "VBS"
then boot solaris 10 (Guest OS) with GUI support (to make it easy) and then in upper menu (VBMenue) select "Devices" and then Click "Install Guest Additions"

You will get a folder on the desktop (Guest OS Solaris 10 Desktop) open it and run the file named "Autorun" in terminal.

It will install required package.

Create a folder / file where you like
in my case it is
mkdir /mnt/edr_xp

and then run following code in terminal window :

mount -F VBS /mnt/edr_xp

now go and see the /mnt/edr_xp containing all your data
have a good day

Besides, i coulnd't install vbox addons and couldn't attach an usb device either!
Please help!

Posted by themightydeity on July 27, 2010 at 10:19 AM EST #

i used ur method but i m getting many options like these-

Usage: mount.vboxsf [OPTIONS] NAME MOUNTPOINT
Mount the VirtualBox shared folder NAME from the host system to MOUNTPOINT.

-w mount the shared folder writably (the default)
-r mount the shared folder read-only
-n do not create an mtab entry
-o OPTION[,OPTION...] use the mount options specified

Available mount options are:
rw mount writably (the default)
ro mount read only
uid=UID set the default file owner user id to UID
gid=GID set the default file owner group id to GID
ttl=TTL set the "time to live" to TID for the dentry
dmode=MODE override the mode of all directories to (octal) MODE
fmode=MODE override the mode of all regular files to (octal) MODE
umask=UMASK set the umask to (octal) UMASK
dmask=UMASK set the umask applied to directories only
fmask=UMASK set the umask applied to regular files only
iocharset CHARSET use the character set CHARSET for I/O operations
(default set is utf8)
convertcp CHARSET convert the folder name from CHARSET to utf8

Less common used options:
noexec,exec,nodev,dev,nosuid,suid

Make sure to use Samba along with it though, otherwise you will most likely receive this error;

In case this doesn't work for someone and you get the error
"mounting failed with error: No such device virtualbox"

you might need to reinstall guest additions. before you do so, do
sudo apt-get install dkms build-essential linux-headers-generic

once that is done, reinstall the vbox guest additions as before.

reboot and then try mounting the shared directory as before.

I have seen a few other links talk about "modprobe vboxvfs" and checking if vboxvfs is listed in lsmod. It did not help me.

Hope this helps someone!

Dear fellows:

It's mandatory INSTALL THE SMB PACKAGES for Linux. Only this way it can view Network.
Linux manage shared folders and network folders via Samba.

Portuguese:

É preciso INSTALAR OS PACOTES SAMBA para que o compartilhamento Windows possa ser visto pelo Linux.

Posted by Bernardo on January 25, 2011 at 10:58 PM EST #

Complementing:

You must install vbox-guest-additions also in Ubuntu in order to Samba recognize the vboxsf type filesystem.

Posted by swiftcarinsurance on January 29, 2011 at 03:42 AM EST #

I put my 5 hours for installations. But I did it myself faced many problems but at last did it.

Many of you would be facing the one I faced that is Protocol error this is all our mistake avoid confusion of 'map network drive' which has been posted in many forums. Just be simple no such activity make a shared folder from Devices -> shared folders and don't forget to install 'Guest Addition' install it and than run it from guest ubuntu. Now run the 'sudo mount -t vboxsf shared_folder mountpoint' it is done. When you install 'Guest Addition' you actually install this 'vboxsf'. So enjoy.

Posted by chandra shekhar on March 02, 2011 at 06:17 PM EST #

re the protocol errors. Chandra is correct helped me out.
The frustrating thing is i have to reinstall guest additions and re mount the shared folder evry time i boot up linux guest. Is there a solution for this so i dont have to do this evry time.

Posted by david on March 23, 2011 at 06:25 AM EST #

Hi David,

No need to worry, I too got trapped with this issue but later after reading several forums I got the answer you can find your shared folder in /media/ path. And you can access this folder with root permission or just add yourself to vboxsf group.
:)

Posted by chandra shekhar on March 24, 2011 at 09:24 AM EST #

Got it working to mount the shared folder automatically after hours of googling, anyway i hope this thread helps people in the future. See below links to my google searches

basically i did this

[code]sudo gedit /etc/fstab[/code]

then type at the end of fstab file
[code]media /home/david/shared vboxsf defaults 0 0[/code]
then save the fstab file and reboot linux mint guest

media = name of my VM box shared folder name
home/david/shared = shared is the folder i created in Linux mint under my home/username(david) directory path

Posted by david on March 25, 2011 at 03:10 AM EST #

thank you very munch

Posted by chen_767 on April 01, 2011 at 07:43 PM EST #

Since this post is 2 years old and VB is now at version 4.0, perhaps the following might save some folks some work.

Using VirtualBox 4.0 running under Vista 64 with a virtualized Ubuntu 10.x server 64 bit.

1. Create your shared folder (call it foo). When you do so, check auto mount and make permanent. These should be available to you in the windows where you create the entry for your shared folder.
2. Assuming you've installed the Guest addition already, reboot the virtual machine.
3. Login
4. sudo ls /media/sf_foo. Your files are there.
5. You may need to change the permissions on your files and your group to allow other users to access the shared folder.

Hope this helps.

Egan.
