Error while adding user mappings : The guest operating system agent has been configured to disable the operation.

Hi ,

I am trying to add user mapping for a guest VM with open vmware tools running.

VM -> Configure-> Guest user mappings . Am seeing the below error .

"The guest operating system agent has been configured to disable the operation."

Should i  enable this some where in the guest VM in some conf file ? If so where and how ?

Appreciate any help.

Thanks,

Arvind

I'm not 100% that's supported with open-vm-tools. Have you tried tar tools instead?
