Operation Failed Timed out waiting for VMware Tools after 300 seconds - SRM 8.2

Jump to solution

Hey guys

Haven't touched SRM for a long time and having first look at SRM 8.2
Can someone tell me how I can set the VMware tools timeout on a global scale?
Pretty sure this was possible in the earlier versions.
Also don't seem to have option to do it on a per VM basis.
Maybe I am overlooking something

Hi,

you can change the VM Tools timeout per VM from the VM Recovery Properties. You can find more info in the documentation (Configure Virtual Machine Startup and Shutdown Options ).

Hope this helps,
