    Kali Live CD automatically mounts on restart

    OS: Mac OS X 10.13
    Virtualization: VMWare Fusion 10
    Guest OS: Kali 2017.2

    Hey guys,

    I recently installed Kali 2017.2 on VMWare Fusion 10 using my Mac. Everything is great and running smooth.

    To install VMWare Tools, I mounted the Kali Live CD using (Virtual Machine -> Install VMWare Tools) option in VMWare Fusion.

    However, after installation, even after ejecting the CD, every time I restart the virtual machine, the Kali Live CD gets automatically mounted. How can I disable this?

    My /etc/fstab file contains the following line, which I think has something to do with it:
    /dev/sr0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0

    Any help is appreciated. Thank You!

    [SOLVED]

    Apparently VMWare Fusion has an auto-mount feature at "Virtual Machine -> CD/DVD(IDE) -> CD/DVD(IDE) Settings".

    Disable it to solve this problem. Hope this helps someone!
