Hi,

./vmrun -gu "root" -gp "Password" CopyFileFromGuestToHost "/Users/VM185084/Virtual Machines.localized/OpenSUSE 64-bit.vmwarevm/OpenSUSE 64-bit.vmx" "/etc/fstab" "/tmp/file_linux"

Error: Unknown error

Details:

1)

/etc/fstab file exist in my VM.

vm185084@localhost:~> ps -alx | grep vmtools

15.2 isn't supported by Fusion 11.

Compatibility guide

Does the issue persist with Fusion 12?

Does this have anything to do with host OS? 

I'm having Catalina, can upgrade to Big Sur fix this?
