Any update on using copy/paste from our workstation/laptop into a VM Console of windows VM hoted on AHV cluster? 

How Do I Enable Copy and Paste in AHV? | Nutanix Community


this would be a great feature to implement but it does not seem to be any information as to when this would be available and we would be deploying 3 new AHV Clusters so not sure if this is on the pipeline.


thank you

Really a nice enhancement for AHV VM console, as of now there is no update on the feature release.

This may be the most wanted feature for adminsitrators right now… Hopefully it will come one day.


This would be very useful.  I am pretty sure I put in a feature request as a new customer about 4 years ago.

This would be good - being asked by customers as they are used t this with VMware.

This seems like such an obvious requirement for a hypervisor.  I know VMware, Hyper-V and even VirtualBox all have this ability.

I am looking forward to the day that I can copy paste scripts, etc. into an AHV console.

Also waiting for an update on this!

Good request… I am used to not being able to copy/paste direct because of past vendors having the same constraints, but would be a great addition if Nutanix development can do it for us.
