I need to set up a virtual machine using Parallels on my Mac to have macOS as a guest machine. I want to have it be able to share the host file system and clipboard. I would also prefer to be able to restore a configuration from Time Machine or the host Mac. None of the above procedures work. The VM is completely isolated from the host. Some things I have tried: Install Parallels Tools. That does not work. The procedure asks for the Parallels Tools CD. There is not anything I can find like that. I found some advice saying that the file is located at /Applications/Parallels Desktop.app/Contents/Resources/Tools/prl-tools-mac.iso. But there is no such Parallels Desktop.app. I did find that prl-tools-mac.iso is apparently mounted on the VM CD device. But cannot find any way to access it. Using Migration Assistant to load a configuration from the host fails, because the Migration Assistant cannot run on both the host and VM at the same time. Migration Assistant on the host requires that all applications including Parallels be shut down. Using Migration Assistant to load a configuration from a Time Machine Backup: It cannot find Time Machine backups on an external drive attached to the host. It cannot even see the external drive. I ejected the drive from the host and reconnected it--the setting in the VM is that it should ask me which to attach to, the host or the VM. It just attaches to the host. Trying to access the host file system from the VM fails because it will not accept the username and password. It seems there is some missing piece that prevents the sharing of anything between the VM and the host. The VM Configure > Options > Sharing are set to All Disks and Map Mac volumes to the virtual machine. And in More Options, Share the Mac clipboard is checked. So it appears that all the settings are in place, yet the VM is 100% isolated. What am I missing?
