Logged into vSphere and select a VM.   Go to Edit Settings > Options > General and the Configuration Parameters button is greyed out.    What controls that?

May not even be what I need.....trying to make sure the copy / paste function is disabled.

The VM is Powered ON, try turning if off, and then you will be able to edit the VMX (configuration information).

The configuration information, is cached whilst the VM is Powered UP, so it's not easy to edit when the VM is Live or ON!

these values are the ones you are looking for...these would ENABLE cut and paste!





to toggled to TRUE, would disable!
