vmware tools centos 5.5

Posted by Felipe Olivaes in xalassa


VMWare can exploit yum repository.

1. Import public key for yum repository. Execute this as root

# rpm –import

2. CentOS stores yum repository definition in /etc/yum.repos.d
Create a file named, vmtools.repo and populate it with following contents
name=VMware Tools for CentOS $releasever – $basearch

In the above example, I’ve used baseurl with “4.0” as ESXi version & x86_64 for 64 bit CentOS. This can be different for you.

3. Run yum install command to install VMWare tools on your CentOS Linux server.
# yum install vmtools

You should see installation log on your screen at attached on this page “yum_vmware-tools.install.log”, with one prompt for vmware package installation.

4. Restart CentOS linux server.

GOOD NEWS, post CentOS restart if you go to vSphere vmserver instance -> console you don’t have to press Ctrl+Alt every time you want to switch between Linux console & Windows OS 🙂 . And it’s fast too.
