    CD/DVD drive 1 shows [] /usr/lib/vmware/isoimages/linux.iso after upgrading VMWare Tools on RHEL5

    71rellimcm39 Novice

      Using vSphere 6.0.0 Server/Client and I have two RHEL5 x32 guests.

       

      I've just upgraded the VMWare Tools to 10.1.10-6082533 and it was successful.  Before I ran vmware-install.pl, I always unmount the install iso.

       

      However once the install successfully completes, I notice under the guest that under Edit Settings > CD/DVD drive 1, the following appears:  [] /usr/lib/vmware/isoimages/linux.iso (see attached screenshot for more information).  This directory does not appear under the RHEL guest.  So I'm guessing its under the ESXi host.

       

      However because of this, we aren't able to vMotion this guest to another host if we need to.

       

      I'm wondering if anyone else has come across this or why this keeps happening.

       

      thanks
