I have a cluster of vSphere 5.5 hosts. I have set the VMs to auto update their VMware tools on power cycle. A few weeks back I patched my cluster to the latest available. I have verified that all Hosts are at ESXi 5.5.0 build 302994. If I check my vCenter I see that a good chunk of the VMs now have "Current" for their VMware tools Version. I went and ran a powerCLI report to verify and I'm confused by what I'm seeing.
I'm looking at the Config.tools.ToolsVersion property and I'm getting a range of values from 9541, 9359, 9354 all are saying "Current" for VMware tools version. The few remaining VMs that have a Config.tools.ToolsVersion value is 9356 are reporting as Out-of-date.
So the question is what would cause the VMs to have different version of VMware tools but think they are all current?
did u power cycle the vms & even after that u see the diff ?
