Enable Copy and Paste within vSphere Client

To enable the copy and paste option for all virtual machines in the ESXi host:

  1. Log in to the ESX/ESXi host as a root user.
  2. Take a backup of the /etc/vmware/config file.
  3. Open the /etc/vmware/config file using a text editor.
  4. Add these entries to the file:

    vmx.fullpath = “/bin/vmx”

  5. Save and close the file.

The Copy and Paste options are only enabled when the virtual machines restarts, and you must have vmware tools installed.
