I was able to copy and paste a file from my machine to vertica VM. But it is not happening any more. Can you please help me how to do that.

    I have Windows 10 64-bit laptop and I have installed -
    VMware® Workstation 12 Pro
    version: 12.5.9 build-7535481
    And a CentOS 7.4 virtual machine inside that.

    Under VMware Workstation -> VM -> settings -> Options -> Guest Isolation ->

    both enable drag & drop and copy & paste are ticked. But still I am not able to copy and paste anything.

    This is most likely a VMWare Workstation issue. I found what may be the solution in comment 20 on this VMware thread. https://communities.vmware.com/thread/436411?start=15&tstart=0

    It's Workstation 9 but it seems to be referenced in several other threads with older and newer versions of Workstation. Some comments indicated a bug with VMWare.

    I hope it helps
