As stated - the web console does not allow copy/paste (event plain text) into the VM console.
I am having the issue in differnt guest OS versions - 2008, 2008r2, 2106.
All have the latest vm tools installed.
I've also set isolation.tools.copy/paste.disable to false (with VM powered off).
As for the key duplication - I am constantly getting duplicated characters.
It's so bad, I have to type passwords in Notepad to make sure it registers what I type,
then copy/paste in the password prompts (learned that the hard way when
a duplicate character was introduced in a password...)
Yes - I've read all the posts on both of these issues.
I've set the typematic delay as directed. I've even rebooted the host.
Any thoughts when the normal means aren't working?
Thanks in advance!
See if the workaround mentioned on Keystrokes typed into the vSphere Web Client console of a virtual machine do not translate correctly... helps.
If you mean to use the VM Console app - I'm afraid that's even WORSE.
In the VM Console app on Windows 10 on a 4k display, the VM console is postage stamp size.
Trying to move the window across monitors to a 1920x1080 monitor only scales the postage stamp.
I've tried increasing the window size - it snaps back to postage size.
I can attach an image if you'd like to see it - it's almost comical.
This is becoming a blocker for me, as I have VM's only accessible via the VM Console. I can't even log into one because the password keeps repeating characters.
Is there any fix forthcoming on this???
I've got the same issue with each console. It seem to coincide with Adobe Flash Player 27. Well, that's been updated 3 times since so perhaps that's not the case. Sometimes its even a local LAN console not over the WAN. We've got 1GB/s from desktop to core. Less than 80 Vms all on 10gb/s ethernet. Plenty of resources, what gives?
