I am trying to find the last vmware tools version that supports Windows 2003R2.
I have a cluster that has 2003R2, 200R2, 2012 and 2016 versions of windows.
My 1st question is can you have multiple versions of vmware tools in teh datastore for deployment ?
My second question is what i steh last vmware tools version to support windows 2003R2
Download manual vmtools: Index of /45848/tools/esx
Installation Instructions Windows Server 2003 R2: VMware Compatibility Guide - Guest/Host Search
You dont have any problem to deploy different tools version on the same datasotre.
Effectively, you can follow the link, to know wath's the las t tools versions, but I think the best way is just listen your vcenter
When you select your VM un resume tab you cans see if your tools are uptodate for your vcenter
