I'm not sure if I understand your question correctly, but the VMware Tools do not update anything under ESX, only the guests are affected (as the tools are installed inside the guests).

Hi, If your running under Windows then you could run a registry/file system scanner tool before the install and then after to generate a list of file/registry changes. Try something like this google search




Thanks,
