Q:

How to install VMware tools on Airwave 8.2.6 & above version?



A:

We have added  open-vm-tools package from 8.2.6 code. If you are planning to install 8.2.6 or newer version, it will automatically install and service will start running. We can check the status by running command from AMPCLI

Note: If we install it on Hyper-V, the system installs the rpm package but doesn't’start the service, if it detects it is a pure hardware installation (non-VM). In service list we will see it is not running with  ”dead, but pid file exist”  message.
