Re: CentOS – VirtualBox Shared Folder

Yesterday I wrote about how to work around CentOS 7 in a VirtualBox environment not automaticaly mounting shared folders. While that method will work, it’s not the most correct answer. A better answer is to create a /etc/modules-load.d/vboxsf.conf with the following entry: vboxsf. After reboot, you should then see a similar type message in from dmesg:

automount vbsvcAutoMountWorker: Shared folder 'Documents' was mounted to '/media/sf_Documents'

I still think this is unnecessary, but is a cleaner method than hacking /etc/rc.local.

Just goes to show that there’s more than one way to do everything in software; especially Linux.

And that’s all I have to say about that.
