VMware Tools OSP install Centos 6

Hi

I am trying to install the OSP VMware tools on Centos 6.

I've downloaded and installed and keys and setup the yum repo file, following the guide in the documentation, but when I run yum install vmware-tools I get one of two errors. Either:

http://packages.vmware.com/tools/esx/5.0/rhel6/i686/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] PYCURL ERROR 22 - "The requested URL returned error: 404"

or occassionally

http://packages.vmware.com/tools/esx/5.0/rhel6/i686/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] PYCURL ERROR 6 - "Couldn't resolve host 'packages.vmware.com'"

If I copy the URL into a browser it returns:

An error occurred while processing your request.

Reference #132.d963bc3.1316941827.21c1808d

Searching on this error there is nothing specific to the package I am trying to download but seems to indicate that it may have been removed? Centos 6 and ESXi 5 are both very much current so is this a transient problem at VMWare?

Also if I go and browse around on packages.vmware.com the url that seems to have data is:

packages.vmware.com/tools/esx/5.0/rhel6/i386

DNS lookups from the server never fail to resolve packages.vmware.com.

Any ideas please?

Thanks

Mart
