After finished installation of Ubuntu 13.04(Raring Ringtail) in VirtualBox, found out that by default the clipboard is not shared between the host(Windows Server 2008 R2) and the guest(Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail)

Here are the fix steps:

  1. In VirtualBox guest window, navigate to: Devices -> “Install guest additions…”, finish the installation
  2. Now navigate to: Machine -> Settings -> General Tab -> Advanced tab -> Now should appear “Shared Clipboard” option, select “Bidirectional”, click “OK”

Now should be able to copy/paste text between the guest and the host
