[Solved] How to install VMware Tools to enable and use the shared folders in the VM

Post by denqyj » Tue May 15, 2018 5:36 am

I installed EVE Community Edition VM on VMware Workstation using the downloaded ova file.

Now I want to use the shared folders of VMware Workstation. How can I install VMware Tools in EVE VM to enable and use the shared folders in the VM?

The main issue of using the shared folders in the VM is solved.

EVE VM in the ova file has already installed with "open-vm-tools" package. I added the following line to "/etc/fstab" file in the VM and then rebooted the VM. Now I can use the shared folders in "/mnt/hgfs" directory in the VM.

.host:/ /mnt/hgfs fuse.vmhgfs-fuse auto,nouser,async,uid=65534,gid=65534,allow_other,default_permissions,umask=022,auto_unmount 0 0
