I was unable to copy/paste between my View client session and my desktop so I powered off the View VM and added the following to the VM advanced configuration:
isolation.tools.copy.disable = true
isolation.tools.paste.disable = true
Partial success… I can copy from my desktop and paste into the View VM but I can’t do the reverse. I can’t copy inside the View VM and bring that clipboard text back out to my desktop. I didn’t see anything about copy/paste in the View Connection Server pool or global configuration.
The interesting thing is that outside of the View client, copy/paste works both directions when accessing the VM using the vSphere Client remote console. This tells me the commands above work and are correct, except they don’t work 100% with the View Client.
Am I missing anything?
I just upgraded the Lab to View 5 and i have the exact same issue as Jason. I can copy from the local desktop to the virtual desktop but not the otherway around.
"Did you check the View Agent GPOs to make sure bi-directional copy / paste is enabled?"
Yes. That policy is enabled.
I am facing the same issue. Did any got any resolution.
- Able to copy/paste from my host to View machine
- Not able to copy/paste from view machine to host
I too seem to be able to copy from desktop to my linked-clone view desktop, but unable to do the reverse. You folks are mentioning a GPO that controls bi-directional copy/paste functionality? Where exactly is that GPO, I can't seem to find it.
I haven't done any work on this since but it still annoys me from time to time in that copy/paste in 1 direction works, but not in the opposite direction. VMware offers GPO templates which can be found on the View Connection Server in the following location:
c:\Program Files\VMware\VMware View\Server\extras\GroupPolicyFiles\
There are six .adm templates plus some ThinPrint DLLs.
This is by default for security reasons, here is from the admin guide:
Configure clipboard redirection
It's working now. Thank you.
