my guest os is rhel 5.1...
i make a folder in my host os win 7 and give the rights to vmware workstation user but
i share the folder as mentioned in document but it is not shown in guest os linux in /mnt/
what i can do to see this folder.
Samba is overly complicated for a setup like this.
OP - you created a folder in Win and set it up as a shared folder in VMWare, correct? In your Shared Folders section, you should have the name you've given to the folder, the host (windows) location, and the check box should be checked. You've also installed the VMWare tools in your RHEL VM right? If so, you should be able to mount the share in your VM.
i have create a folder name Linux Data and location is destop of host os which is win 7.
i go to vm setting and enable sharable folder and check the checkbox.....
now i to linux as root and past this command
mount /Linux Data /mnt
but it did't works..............???????????
Thanks for your reply...but my problem is still not solved.
i give this command as root
but the its return command not found...
what this mean????
i can't understand what i can do.....
It should be in one of the menus at the top, "Virtual Machine > Install VMWare Tools" or the like. This should be step 1 when setting up any OS (Windows or Linux) in a VM. This allows you to interface more cleanly with the VM...shared clipboard, on-the-fly mouse integration, on-the-fly window/resolution resizing, and shared folder support.
i find the mount point..
now i go to linux dvd and find the network folder where i can found all the rpm.
but searched for the
from where i can download this rpm.
because i think this is required for the installation vm tool in linux....
are i am right.....
