Enable clipboard copy and paste for on Esxi VM


Enable clipboard copy and paste for a single VM ^

You’ll need to log in to vCenter (or an ESXi host) using the vSphere Web Client and shut down the VM.

Then select the VM, click the Summary tab, and go to Edit Settings > VM Options > Advanced > Edit Configuration Add Configuration Params. This will add a new row. Next, type these values in the Name and Valuecolumns:

1isolation.tools.copy.disable  FALSE

Validate and then repeat and click Add Configuration Params once more to add this one as well:

1isolation.tools.paste.disable FALSE
Add Configuration Params

Add Configuration Params

Click OK to close the Configuration Parameters dialog, and click OK again to close the Virtual Machine Properties dialog.

Start the VM, and you should now be able to use your clipboard.

Note: If you perform vMotion of a VM to a host where the isolation.tools.*=”FALSE” parameter is already configured, it will automatically activate the copy and paste options for that VM. This means the host level overrides the VM-level options.
