Centos and VMware tools

May 1, 2012

I found a funky blog post detailing the steps to get VMware tools from the official vmware repo. The details below are for 4.1 but it should be easy enough to tweak for other versions of ESX…

Thanks Emanuelis!

Add VMware GPG keys:

rpm --import
rpm --import

Edit /etc/yum.repos.d/vmware-tools.repo:

name=VMware Tools

Install VMware Tools:

yum install vmware-open-vm-tools-nox
