comment How can I do NFSv4 UID mapping across systems with UID mismatches?

comment Virtualbox 4.2.18 Ubuntu guest — unable to access shared folder
that might be a know bug. try to use the cli and copy the file using the full path. ex: cp /sf_mount/file /home/my_user. If it works it is because of a bug with kernel 3.10 and up if I remember correctly.
