Drill in MapR sandbox accessing host Yelp files

I'm running through the tutorial at Installing the Apache Drill Sandbox - Apache Drill  and it's all going well with the `orders` and `clicks` etc.  I can ssh in, I can see the Drill webpage (ie the Storage plugins) and so on.

I've also downloaded the Yelp files onto my laptop (ie the macbook host) and have set up a Shared Folder in VirtualBox console but can't seem to access them from within the sandbox.

I don't really want to install Drill directly on my laptop as well as via the VirtualBox, so my question is how to access that shared folder from the MapR sandbox?


I tried playing around with the dfs configuration firstly mapping to the host files directly:

      `"location": "/Users/simon/Documents/Apache Drill/yelp/",`

I also tried mounting a new drive via the ssh terminal

    `$sudo mount -t vboxsf -v /yelp /yelp`

but it didn't accept the value of  `mapr` as the password


Any thoughts / sample dfs config?
