Enable copy-paste between virtual machine in vSphere client and local computer

While working with my projects in test mode, it was very inconvinient that I cannot use clipboard between VM and my vSpere client. Fortunately, there is a quite easy way to enable this feature.

  1. Power off the virtual machine.
  2. Go into the VM settings.
  3. Switch to Options tab and select Advanced - General in list to the left.
  4. Click Configuration Parameters button.
  5. There you must add two lines with false values:
    • isolation.tools.copy.disable
    • isolation.tools.paste.disable
  6. Now you can power on VM and clipboard will work.
