Ciao 

There are versions of VMware tools that are not injected into ESXi builds (for some time now, VMware tools have a life of their own)

In this link, you can see what I am telling you

Some versions of VMware Tools can be downloaded separately and here you can see the compatibility:

and here is how to install them

I have to say that it is correct that they are current because what is present in the infrastructure
