Scaricare vmware tools per la versione 16 (vmware player free)

Jump to solution

Ciao,

ho aggiornato dalla versione 15 alla versione 16 di vmware player free.

Il sistema non riesce, in automatico, a scaricare i tool (iso) dei vari sistemi operativi.

Ho provato numerose volte ma non trovo soluzione.

Da dove posso scaricarli manualmente e in quale directory vanno collocati (win/linux)?

Grazie.

The last Linux.iso seems to be in version 10.3.20 as indicated in the page. It is recommended to go with open-vm-tools for Linux VMs.

You can get the latest VMware Tools by going to

https://www.vmware.com/go/tools

Download to the host machine and mount the appropriate iso (e.g. windows.iso for Windows 10/8/7/Vista) as a virtual CD to the VM.

For Linux VMs, it is recommended to use open-vm-tools but there should be a linux.iso also available.

Il problema è che con le open vmtools non mi funziona correttamente la condivisione delle cartelle.

Con le VMWare tools per linux questo problema non c'è.

I don't know if the problem you face is the same, but there is an "Known Issue" in the VMware Tools release notes.

https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-Tools/11.1/rn/VMware-Tools-1115-Release-Notes.html

Check to see if the solution is also applicable.

Text from the release notes

  • Shared Folders mount is unavailable on Linux VM.

If the Shared Folders feature is enabled on a Linux VM while it is powered off, shared folders mount is not available on restart.

Note: This issue is applicable for VMware Tools running on Workstation and Fusion.

Workaround: If the VM is powered on, disable and enable the Shared Folders feature from the interface.
For resolving the issue permanently, edit /etc/fstab and add an entry to mount the Shared Folders automatically on boot.
For example, add the line:
vmhgfs-fuse   /mnt/hgfs    fuse    defaults,allow_other    0    0

Il problema si pone per le macchine virtuali che devono utilizzare una distribuzione LIVE.

Il problema non sarebbe superabile perché questa soluzione richiede il riavvio della macchina.

In realtà aggiungendo la riga di comando indicata e riavviando il file manager, almeno per una prima prova effettuata, sembra risolvere.

Ci stanno lavorando per risolvere il problema in via definitiva?

Ciao. Smiley Sad
