I was desperately hoping that I'd be able to mitigate the ridiculously awful performance of Drupal in our Windows + Vagrant dev environments by using Samba rather than Virtualbox shared folders, but so far I've had exactly zero success. Has anyone else succeeded? If so, anything you can share to help?
I haven't been able to get past this error when attempting to mount the network share:
Failed to mount folders in Linux guest. This is usually because the "vboxsf" file system is not available. Please verify that the guest additions are properly installed in the guest and can work properly.
- Win7/Win8 host
- Ubuntu 12.04 guest
- Vagrant 1.6.3 + vb-guest plugin
- Virtualbox 4.3.12
I've seen indications around the Google-sphere that I can SSH into the guest and do some magical symlinking, but my vagrant box is powered off when the mount fails. I can't access the box.
