Event ID: 1000 Vmware tools [warning] [vmusr:hgfsd] Setting HFGS Server capability failed.

I have a vdi environment that gets this error in event log:
event id: 1000 VMware tools
[warning]  [vmusr:hgfsd] Setting HFGS Server capability failed.


Is the a setting change in advance for all these vms?

I have hundreds so I need a script

is it this option?  isolation.tools.hgfsServerSet.disable

Need error to go away

We do not have HGFS option on the classic image; however if I modify registry and add HGFS to this Value in ProviderOrder – error disappear

PICANetwork,RDPNP,LanmanWorkstation,webclient

But is there a way to fix inside vm advance settings, without mod of registry?

One of the articles suggested to disable HGFS future ( that it can cause VMs disconnects)

this is not good.

Usually we do not use a Complete Install of VMware Tools, we use a Typical, and do not select this option to be installed!

It has always been an issue! (if you do a complete install).

So you can do a Remove/Modify and just uninstall this feature
