I have a PC with Windows 7x64. I installed Oracle VM (v. 5.2.20). In the VM I installed Ubuntu 18.04 and created a shared folder in the VM. The shared folder has name
vp and refers to
d:\vp folder on Windows.
In Ubuntu, I set up auto-mounting and now this folder is displayed in Ubuntu as
Next, I want to mount this shared folder to my folder on Ubuntu
I can do it on working Ubuntu via the command:
sudo mount -t vboxsf -o uid=1000,gid=1000 vp ~/vp
It works successfully, but when I add this line:
vp /home/roman/vp vboxsf uid=1000,gid=1000
/etc/fstab file and reboot Ubuntu, it somehow doesn't mount upon loading Ubuntu, if writes "FAILED mounting ...".
And if I add this string into
/etc/fstab and execute a command
sudo mount -a
without a reboot, it also works and the folder
/home/roman/vp is mounted successfully.
Could you clarify me, what doesn't mounting work upon loading Ubuntu?
I want to repeat, Ubuntu is installed in Oracle VM and vp is a shared folder, it set up in Oracle VM too.
