Parents showing tools not running

Jump to solution

ESXi hosts - 6.7 Update 3, build 16316930

VMware Tools - 11.0.6

Connection server and agents - 7.11

Center appliance - v6.7.0.44100

nVidia vibs and drivers - 10.1

I am using three hosts and have three Horizon View pools so I end up with

3 Templates

3 Replicas

9 Parents

Here is the odd thing, all 9 parents are of course powered on but it shows in the vSphere web interface that VMware Tools is not running on any of them. The View desktops that are based on these parents all show VMware tools running. What causes this? This was never the case in the past and we have been running Horizon 7 for quite awhile.

For Instant Clone as far as I can remember, this has always been the case. Parents VM are always stopped before booting to apply deployed VM specific configurations

For Parents, it's works as design, as it's frozen before OS started fully

So I do not recall seeing this before, has this always been the case? The reason I ask is we use a product called RunecastAnalyzer that looks at a VMware setup and flags anything out of the ordinary or not up to spec. Several weeks ago it started flagging these parents as not having VMware Tools running. Before that it never flagged it so I am thinking it was an upgrade we did in the last few months to our VMware environment that caused this

I guess it could be the case that the product I use, Runecast Analyzer, just started checking for this
