Start vboxservice has no effect. The appropriate modules (in particular vboxsf) do not get loaded and time synchronisation doesn't work.
If I load the modules myself and run VBoxService as root everything works.

Additional info:
* package version(s)

* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
systemctl start vboxservice
This task depends upon
