I am running Mountain Lion and Parallels 8. I created a virtual machine on my iMac that is also running OSX, so I am running OSX on a VM, on OSX. Currently the VM has no access to the hard drive of the iMac, and I can't figure out why. First, I do not have the option checked which isolates the Virtual Machine from the host, and I do have the Sharing option set to "All Disks," and I have also selected "Connect All" from the Devices menu, so everything should be working. Here is where the problem begins. In the VM, if I open finder, on the sidebar, my host machine is listed under the "Shared" section, so I should be able to access it, but when I click on it I just get a message that reads, "Connecting..." So why can't the VM connect to the host machine? Any ideas?
