Virtualbox (in virtual machine) shared folder may be mounted using 2 commands:
mount -t vboxsf folder /path
mount.vboxsf folder /path

When running manually both commands works.
When running from systemd service only "mount.vboxsf" works (mount -t vboxsf - does not work).

Steps to reproduce:
- Copy "mount.vboxsf" from another virtual machine to test VM.

- Create shared folder for virtual machine.

- In virtual machine create systemd test.service:



- Create /etc/vbmount:
modprobe vboxsf
sleep 1
mount -t vboxsf folder /mnt
#mount.vboxsf folder /mnt

- Try starting service (systemctl start test.service).
When in script 'mount' command folder is not mounted.
When in script 'mount.vboxsf' command folder is mounted.
This task depends upon
