Thanks in advance for any help.
So I have want to have a shared folder mounted on startup and I put the following in my fstab:
where gid 1001 corresponds to the virtualshare group.
VMShare /media/VMShare vboxsf defaults,gid=1001,dmask=002 0 0
When I boot up the permissions are as follows(from ls -l):
So I'm curious why it's group permissions aren't the same as owner?
drwxr-xr-x 1 root virtualshare 68 2010-10-27 15:45 VMShare/
In the fstab I put dmask=002 which should lead to rwxrwxr-x so basically full permissions for owner and group and read/execute for public. However thats not what I'm getting. Also once I get this working correctly am I going to have an issue if the virtualshare group isn't a users primary group? On some older unix servers I ran into this issue, hopefully it won't matter as long as the user in in the group.
