I am following the instructions on the Vagrant site for running Photon under Vagrant control. They work great - first time out of the box!
I realize VMware is probably not terribly eager to support Virtualbox but many of us do use it for this type of project. It seems to be working fine, the Photon instance starts and I can start the docker container and see the "hello world", but I am getting errors during the shared folder mount - see below. The question, "For basic testing do I need to mount a shared folder at all?" If not I can just turn it off in the Vagrantfile and get rid of the error message. If I do, then it might be helpful if you pushed an update with the latest VBoxGuestAdditions installed.
default: /vagrant => C:/cygwin64/home/KSVIETME/vagrant/photon-vagrant
Vagrant was unable to mount VirtualBox shared folders. This is usually
because the filesystem "vboxsf" is not available. This filesystem is
made available via the VirtualBox Guest Additions and kernel module.
Please verify that these guest additions are properly installed in the
guest. This is not a bug in Vagrant and is usually caused by a faulty
Vagrant box. For context, the command attempted was:
mount -t vboxsf -o uid=1000,gid=1000 vagrant /vagrant
Thanks for the great work!
Nobody did anything, so I created a new version which has the Shared Folders under VirtualBox working properly.
