I installed the VMwareTools-8.8.4. The shared folder was working fine. Each time I reboot Ubuntu 12.4 in my vmware on Mac OS the share folder are not mounted? Any idea of what is happening?

So, MAC is the host and Ubuntu is the client.

It's the default behaviour, the VMware shared folders are basically folder shared over the network and without modifying fstab they are being mounted only when you need them.

You can follow this steps How do I mount shared folders (win7 host) in Ubuntu (guest) using VMware(tools v6)
