We are developping a tool which communicate, when used in a guest OS, with other modules by setting a value in guestinfo parameters of a VM using the VMwareService.exe provided by VMware Tools. Since many months, it works very well and we have no problem with this tool.
Recently, a client is experiencing problem with this because the following command fails (on both Windows and Linux with Administrator/root users) :
C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Tools>VMwareService.exe --cmd "info-set guestinfo.IPADDS Nb: 1 Adds: 220.127.116.11" Unknown command
When looking at Summary's tab of this VM in VI3 client, VMware Tools' state is OK but there is no IP address and no hostname displayed. (I don't know if it linked)
We tried to uninstall/reinstall VMware Tools but it is still the same.
Would someone has an idea to solve this problem ?
