Remember that your Linux VM is a simulated virtual computer running on your host system, and it should logically behave just like a regular Linux computer
See the Power off the machine option above
df -hand check that the defined shared folder appears as /media/sf_Scratch
If the host is correctly connected to the network, but you can't access the network from the VM and you get the following kind of ssh error message from the VM:
ssh: Could not resolve hostname machine: Name or service not known
You can reboot the VM, or more simply just restart the network (in the VM), with the following:
sudo service network restart
When your host is connected to the LSCE network, your VM should be able to access/mount directly all the LSCE disks in the VM (e.g., you can type
cd /home/users/your_login directly in local terminal of your VM to access your LSCE home directory).
If you get an error message, there is probably a kerberos related problems… You can try typing
kinit in your local terminal and see if you can then access the LSCE disks!
If you still can't mount the disks, check the status of autofs, and restart it if necessary:
sudo systemctl status autofs
sudo systemctl start autofs
The following settings can probably be done with any Linux environment, but the precise details below apply to the Cinnamon window manager
If something is not behaving as it should, it can be useful to check the system messages!
sudo tail -f /var/log/messages
Once you have a bit more technical information about what's going on, it's easier to
