We upgraded our VMware farm on 3.5 ver. and I would need update VMtools on all VMs. I can select all VMs, click install/upgrade VMtools, choose automatic tools upgrade.
But this isn´t right way for us, becouse we need delegate restart of VMs on aplication admins.
I find this link http://communities.vmware.com/message/850189#850189.
When I try this, msiexec only "copy" "vmware tools.msi" on our local disk and nothing else to do. When I set parameter msiexec .... /qf I can see, that installator asks me for network location??
Why - I set the network location in batch file like this:
msiexec /a "
server\setup\VMTools\vmware tools.msi" /qb /norestart.
Thank you for your help!!
When I try msiexec -i .... I get message with information, that VMtools are already installed and if I want change components, than I have to go to add/remove programs.
Thanks roc.ker for that find. It works great when I intiate a VMware Tools upgrade on a single guest and pass '/s /v"/qn REINSTALLMODE=voums REINSTALL=ALL REBOOT=REALLYSUPRESS"' into the Advanced Options window. It upgrades and does not reboot.
However, when I attempt to run the exact same command on multiple guests, it fails to supress a reboot. Anyone else see this or know a way around it?
