Configure client drive redirection (CDR) options to determine whether a local system's shared folders and drives can be accessed from the remote Linux desktops.

Configure CDR settings by adding entries to the /etc/vmware/config file.

The following configuration example shares the d:\ebooks and C:\spreadsheets folders, makes both folders read-only, and prevents the client from sharing more folders.

cdrserver.forcedByAdmin=true
cdrserver.sharedFolders=d:\ebooks,;c:\spreadsheets,
cdrserver.permissions=R

In the previous example, the comma "," placed after ebooks and spreadsheets is mandatory for correct option parsing.

Any "R" included in the cdrserver.sharedFoldersoption would impact all the folders listed in that setting. In the following example, the ebooks and spreadsheets folders are both read-only even if the R value is only placed after /home/jsmith folder path.

cdrserver.sharedFolders=d:\ebooks,;c:\spreadsheets,;/home/jsmith,R
