I have a virtual machine here which I use for development, so as not to mess anything up in my existing environment.
I've made a share named "web" available to the guest OS (Ubuntu 12.10 Server) from the host OS (Ubuntu 12.04 Desktop). I have configured it to automatically mount in
/etc/fstab with the following line:
web /var/www vboxsf defaults,uid=1000,gid=1000 0 0
However, when I reboot, it's definitely not mounted, the
/var/www folder shows the default install's
index.html file, not the contents of the shared folder.
If I run
sudo mount, I see the mount in the output:
web on /var/www type vboxsf (uid=1000,gid=1000,rw) web on /media/sf_web type vboxsf (gid=1001,rw)
It seems to also be mounted in a different location which I didn't setup.
If I try to remount all the mounts in
/etc/fstab by running
sudo mount -a, it still is not mounted.
I can only get it mounted by manually mounting it using
mount. Where is this other mount location coming from and why is what I'm doing not working?
