    "Shared Folders" with Workstation Pro 15 and RHEL 8

    lesR Lurker

      Has anyone else had this experience?

       

      When creating a VM with RHEL 8 as the guest OS on a Win10 host, I could not see/access the configured shared folders. Nothing would be displayed/visible under /mnt/hgfs.

       

      However, I then tried not allowing VMWare to auto-install RHEL during the creation of the VM, doing the installation manually. When I used this approach, the shared folders appear under /mnt/hgfs...no problems. I have a suspicion that this is due to the ability to configure "Software Selection" during the manual OS installation, (I selected Workstation with Container Management, Development Tools, and Graphical Admin Tools).
