If you need to install the vmware tools for CentOS 6.x as a repo then: rpm –import http://packages.vmware.com/tools/keys/VMWARE-PACKAGING-GPG-RSA-KEY.pub vi /etc/yum.repos.d/VMWare-Tools.repo insert [vmware-tools] name=VMware Tools baseurl=http://packages.vmware.com/tools/esx/latest/rhel6/x86_64 #baseurl=http://packages.vmware.com/tools/esx/4.1latest/rhel6/i686 enabled=1 gpgcheck=1 gpgkey=http://packages.vmware.com/tools/keys/VMWARE-PACKAGING-GPG-RSA-KEY.pub This will point to the latest release for Centos 6.X_X64 then: To select a specific version of ESX you can browse the path to select different directories. yum -y install vmware-tools-services vmware-tools-esx-nox vmware-tools-pvscsi-common vmware-tools-plugins-autoUpgrade vmware-tools-plugins-guestInfo vmware-tools-plugins-powerOps vmware-tools-plugins-timeSync Now this might be a quick and dirty solution to get the latest tools from the repo. However, ESX doesn’t like it and will show them as (?) Running (3rd-party/Independent)” which means it won’t auto-update the tools. it might be better to mount the vmware tools from the ESX Server and after unpacking them to run vmware-install.pl -d to install unattended with the defaults.   Related posts: Linux / VMware: Howto Increase a / (Root) LVM partition on a single vmdk without adding another […]
