vSphere Copy/Paste (Clipboard) integration: To Debian and Beyond
Starting with vSphere 4.1, you have to explicitly permit copy&paste (Clipboard) integration, as it is turned off by default as a security precaution. Follow the steps in http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1026437 to enable this (immensely helpful) integration.
Placed here so:
- I don't forget it;
- I don't get confused because I'm using open-vm instead of VMWare Tools;
- I don't get confused by the fact that I'm using Debian 5, or Debian 6, or Multics, or something else entirely; and
- The link to relevant VMWare KB article is adequately keyworded for my use.
