ESXi 5.0.0 Install VMware Tools on SLES11 SP2 or SP3 Dell T110 vSphere Client 5.0.0 (Build 263860)


- VMware Tool
ESXi5.0.0 with updates (build 623860) + SLES11 SP2, SLED11 SP2  or SP3 = problems

openSUSE12.1 = no problems

- DirctPath I/O
ESXi5.0.0 with update 1 (build 623860) + SLES11 SP2, SLED11 SP2 or SP3 and openSUSE12.1 = Network adapter device does not supported. This is for the onboard NIC and the Broadcom


MInstalling VMware Tools Using OSPs on a SLES 11 SP1, SLES 11, SLED11 SP1, SLED 11 or SP3 Virtual Machine

Download Key:


1 Obtain and import the VMware Packaging Public Keys.

a Create a directory on the virtual machine to store the VMware Packaging Public Keys.
b Use a Web browser to download all the VMware Public Packaging Public Key files from the directory.
c Save the files into the directory you created.
d For each key that you download, run the following command to import the key.

# rpm --import /key_path/key_name


rpm --import

key_path is the directory in which you saved the keys.
key_name is the filename of a key.

2 (Optional) Configure the proxy.

export http_proxy=http://your_proxy_server:3128

3 Create and edit the VMware zypper repository.

a Add the yum style repository as a zypper service.
You must type the entire command.
# zypper addservice --type=YUM vmware-tools-collection

dist is sles11.1 or sles11.0.
arch the architecture option for 32-bit is i586 and for 64-bit is x86_64.
b Verify the repository configuration.

zypper addservice --type=YUM vmware-tools-collection

# zypper packages vmware-tools-collection

As an alternative to creating and editing the VMware zypper repository, you can download the repository configuration package for your distribution from the directory.
Select the proper architecture for your distribution. For example, for a SLES 11 SP1 distribution on a 64-bit
system, you might select vmware-tools-repo-SLES11.1-8.6.0-0.x86_64. For a SLES 11 SP1 distribution on a
32-bit system, you might select vmware-tools-repo-SLES11.1-8.6.0-0.i586.

Install VMware Tools for SLES 11 SP1, SLES 11, SLED 11 SP1 or SP3 and SLED 11 Guest Operating Systems

Use the zypper package management tool to install VMware Tools on a SLES 11 SP1, SLES 11, SLED 11 SP1, or SLED 11 virtual machine. When you specify the VMware Tools package, zypper installs any additional required packages.

1 Open a command window in the guest operating system.

2 Run the `uname -r` command to identify the type of kernel that is installed on the virtual machine.

This command displays the kernel and kernel type. Kernel types can be default, pae, or vmi.

3 Run the following command to install the VMware Tools package.

# zypper install vmware-tools-collection vmware-tools-esx-kmods-kernel_type vmware-tools-esx
For example, if the kernel_type is default, use vmware-tools-esx-kmods-default in the command.
When you run this command, all of the other packages are automatically installed in the correct order.

zypper install vmware-tools-collection vmware-tools-esx-kmods-default  vmware-tools-esx

4 (Optional) On SLES 11 SP1 or SLED 11 SP1 or SP3, install certain VMware Tools provided packages to replace the corresponding system-provided packages.

IMPORTANT: The distribution-provided packages function with VMware Tools. Install these packages only if you have a specific reason to do so.

When you install the VMware Tools packages for SLES 11 SP1, SLES 11, and SLED 11 or SP3, the following message appears:
The following packages are not supported by their vendor: package names The message varies depending on which version of VMware Tools you have installed. You can safely ignore this message

Verify VMware Tools Installation

After you install OSPs and reboot the virtual machine, verify that VMware Tools are installed and functioning properly.


1 Verify that the VMware Tools daemon, vmtoolsd, is running.

pgrep -fl vmtoolsd

2 Verify that the required kernel modules load properly.


The vmmemctl kernel module is always loaded. The vmxnet, vmxnet3, and pvscsi modules are loaded only when the virtual machine is configured with the corresponding device.

modprobe vmxnet3

lsmod | grep vm

NOTE: If the distribution has a vmxnet3, pvscsi, or vmmemctl kernel driver, the drivers are not updated when you install operating system-specific packages.

3 Restart VM Guest

Status of VMware Tools in vSphere Client

After VMware Tools OSPs are installed on a guest, the VMware vSphere Client reports the status of VMware Tools for that guest as 3rd-party/Independent. This status indicates that OSPs are installed. In this situation, do not attempt to install the standard VMware Tools through the VMware vSphere Client.
