Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/cp from 'create' accesses on the directory VBox.

*****  Plugin catchall_labels (83.8 confidence) suggests  ********************

If you want to allow cp to have create access on the VBox directory
Then you need to change the label on VBox
# semanage fcontext -a -t FILE_TYPE 'VBox'
where FILE_TYPE is one of the following: NetworkManager_unit_file_t, abrt_unit_file_t, accountsd_unit_file_t, alsa_unit_file_t, amanda_unit_file_t, apcupsd_lock_t, apcupsd_unit_file_t, apmd_lock_t, apmd_unit_file_t, arpwatch_unit_file_t, auditd_unit_file_t, automount_lock_t, automount_unit_file_t, avahi_unit_file_t, bcfg2_unit_file_t, bluetooth_lock_t, bluetooth_unit_file_t, boinc_unit_file_t, boot_t, chronyd_unit_file_t, clamd_unit_file_t, cobblerd_unit_file_t, collectd_unit_file_t, colord_unit_file_t, condor_unit_file_t, condor_var_lock_t, consolekit_unit_file_t, corosync_unit_file_t, couchdb_unit_file_t, crond_unit_file_t, cupsd_lock_t, cupsd_unit_file_t, denyhosts_var_lock_t, device_t, dhcpd_unit_file_t, dirsrv_var_lock_t, dirsrv_var_run_t, dirsrvadmin_lock_t, dnsmasq_unit_file_t, drbd_lock_t, faillog_t, fenced_lock_t, firewalld_unit_file_t, fonts_t, ftpd_lock_t, ftpd_unit_file_t, getty_lock_t, getty_unit_file_t, httpd_lock_t, httpd_unit_file_t, initrc_state_t, initrc_tmp_t, initrc_var_log_t, ipsec_mgmt_lock_t, iptables_unit_file_t, iscsi_lock_t, kdump_unit_file_t, keystone_unit_file_t, krb5kdc_lock_t, ksmtuned_unit_file_t, likewise_pstore_lock_t, local_login_lock_t, lockdev_lock_t, logrotate_lock_t, logwatch_lock_t, lvm_lock_t, mailman_lock_t, mandb_lock_t, mnt_t, mrtg_lock_t, mysqld_db_t, mysqld_unit_file_t, named_conf_t, named_unit_file_t, nfsd_unit_file_t, nis_unit_file_t, nova_ajax_unit_file_t, nova_api_unit_file_t, nova_cert_unit_file_t, nova_compute_unit_file_t, nova_console_unit_file_t, nova_direct_unit_file_t, nova_network_unit_file_t, nova_objectstore_unit_file_t, nova_scheduler_unit_file_t, nova_vncproxy_unit_file_t, nova_volume_unit_file_t, nscd_unit_file_t, ntpd_unit_file_t, numad_unit_file_t, oddjob_unit_file_t, openvswitch_unit_file_t, pacemaker_unit_file_t, pkcsslotd_lock_t, pkcsslotd_unit_file_t, pki_ra_lock_t, pki_tomcat_lock_t, pki_tomcat_unit_file_t, pki_tps_lock_t, polipo_unit_file_t, postgresql_db_t, postgresql_lock_t, power_unit_file_t, pppd_lock_t, pppd_unit_file_t, qpidd_var_run_t, quantum_unit_file_t, radiusd_unit_file_t, rhev_agentd_unit_file_t, rhsmcertd_lock_t, ricci_modstorage_lock_t, ricci_var_lib_t, rngd_unit_file_t, rpcd_unit_file_t, samba_unit_file_t, sanlock_unit_file_t, semanage_read_lock_t, semanage_trans_lock_t, sensord_unit_file_t, shorewall_lock_t, slapd_lock_t, slapd_unit_file_t, sshd_unit_file_t, sssd_unit_file_t, svc_svc_t, svnserve_unit_file_t, system_cronjob_lock_t, systemd_unit_file_t, tmpfs_t, tomcat_unit_file_t, tor_unit_file_t, udev_var_run_t, usbmuxd_unit_file_t, user_fonts_t, uucpd_lock_t, var_lock_t, var_run_t, virt_cache_t, virt_lock_t, virt_lxc_var_run_t, virt_var_run_t, virtd_unit_file_t, xdm_lock_t, ypbind_unit_file_t. 
Then execute: 
restorecon -v 'VBox'

*****  Plugin catchall (17.1 confidence) suggests  ***************************

If you believe that cp should be allowed create access on the VBox directory by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
allow this access for now by executing:
# grep cp /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
