We are running the latest build of ESXi - 4.1. We are in the process of updating the vmware tools on each of our VM's. What I am noticing is a change in the status now presented.
If no user is logged into machine/console of the vm the tools status shows as not running. Likewise, the status on all vm's are not updating correctly. Some are showing out of date even though the latest version of the tools have been installed and guest has been restarted.
We are also running the latest version and build of vcenter.
