Upload vmtools images iso to shared storage

Hi Expert,

I just installed ESXi with no-tools image by autodeploy, and realize that there is no VMware tools provided by ESXi.

is it possible if I just uploading the image tools into default vmtools folder (/productLocker) ??? is there any impact to esxi services/other?

will it recognize by the Guest VM if i want to install vm tools automatically?

 

Thanks in advance.
