I would suggest that you update the VM Tools to be approved in High Sierra. If you install the current tools and reboot, High Sierra complains that the two KEXTs that are installed are disabled and that you should go into the System Preferences to enable them. This is a slightly jarring experience. This should be better, IMO.
I'm sure you guys have access to the High Sierra Public Beta too.
Thanks for the feedback. We recognize the experience is less than ideal, and the issue is one we're looking into.
