VirtualBox 에서 HDD 용량 늘리는 법



Sharing Host’s directories in Guests



Run Windows Command Processor as administrator

\ cd C:\Users\<you>
\ mklink /D C:\Users\<you>\.m2 \\VBOXSVR\<shared>\.m2


$ pwd
$ ln -s /media/<shared>/.m2



$ pwd
$ /home/<you>
$ ln -s /media/<shared>/.ssh
$ cat /etc/ssh/sshd_config
#StrictModes yes
StrictModes no

Installing VirtualBox Guest Additions in Ubuntu Server

Insert the image by selecting the menu item of Devices / Insert Guest Additions CD Image... (Host+D).

Mount the inserted image.

$ sudo mount -t iso9660 -o ro /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom

Execute VBoxLinuxAdditions.run file.

$ cd /media/cdrom
$ ls -1F
$ sudo ./VBoxLinuxAdditions.run

The script may complain about the absence of gcc and make. Install them and run the script again.

$ sudo apt-get -y install gcc make
$ sudo ./VBoxLinuxAdditions.sh

You can unmount the cdrom.

$ sudo umount /media/cdrom

You might want to reboot the guest.

$ sudo /sbin/shutdown -r now

One of benefits that guest additions offers is sharing folders between the host and the guest.

$ ls -l /media
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root    ____ MMM dd HH:mm cdrom/
drwxrwx--- 1 root vboxsf _____ MMM dd HH:mm sf_shared/

You can add yourself to vboxsf group and use them.

$ sudo adduser <yourself> vboxsf

You need to logout and login for making the change effects.

$ logout

Now you can read/(write) in the shared directory.

$ cd /media/sf_shared/
$ echo test > test.txt
$ cat test.txt
