I've tried to get values using vmtoolsd, as per http://communities.vmware.com/thread/326930, without success, I keep getting 'No value found' ...
The value is in the VM configuration ...
Also, checked out the vmx file ...
No matter what values I use I get 'No value found'.
Can someone help please?
ESXi5.0, tools up to date, HW8.
Many thanks, Andy.
Hi, thanks for this, but no - it just passes 'No value found'.
My issue is that the example post gets the value 'vm-180' but all I get is 'No value found' no matter how I construct it.
The whole thing with "guestinfo" worked for me after a little fix. The following example illustrates he case:
$ vmware-cmd --config esxi-24 "[DS_104.24_150] LTSP2/LTSP2.vmx" setguestinfo myTest "hello world"setguestinfo(myTest hello world) = 1$ vmware-cmd --config esxi-24 "[DS_104.24_150] LTSP2/LTSP2.vmx" getguestinfo myTestgetguestinfo(myTest) = hello world$ vmtoolsd --cmd "info-get guestinfo.myTest"No value found$ vmtoolsd --cmd "info-get myTest"Invalid key name supplied$ vmware-cmd --config esxi-24 "[DS_104.24_150] LTSP2/LTSP2.vmx" setguestinfo guestinfo.myTest "bla-bla-bla"setguestinfo(guestinfo.myTest bla-bla-bla) = 1$ vmware-cmd --config esxi-24 "[DS_104.24_150] LTSP2/LTSP2.vmx" getguestinfo guestinfo.myTestgetguestinfo(guestinfo.myTest) = bla-bla-bla$ vmtoolsd --cmd "info-get guestinfo.myTest"bla-bla-bla
I had the exact same problem.
It turned out the VM was already powered on when I turned on the vApp options, and enabled OVF environment transport via VMware Tools.
I tried rebooting to no avail.
Turned out I had to power off the VM entirely before the options I enabled would take effect...Hope this helps someone!
