Enable Copy Paste Globally in ESXi

If you are like me and constantly copy paste things between your host machine and VMs, but don't want to bother enabling copy paste each VM in your ESXi configuration, here's how you do it.

First, enable SSH access, connect to your ESXi host, and edit the "/etc/vmware/config" file

vi /etc/vmware/config

Now add in the following lines:

vmx.fullpath = "/bin/vmx"
isolation.tools.copy.disable="FALSE"
isolation.tools.paste.disable="FALSE"
isolation.tools.setGUIOptions.enable="TRUE"

To take effect right away, reboot the ESXi host.
