I Want re-installation to be done through SCCM

I tryied  below solution from "VMware_Tools_-_Unattended_Install".

Update of VMware Tools:

If the VMware Tools package is already installed and needs to be updated, the command line must be slightly adjusted. If the same syntax is used as for the fresh installation, it will produce an error message stating that there is an older version of VMware Tools already installed which first needs to be removed. While this would also work, there is a more elegant way to update existing VMware Tools installations (and, for instance, preserve network settings):

msiexec /i "VMware Tools.msi" REINSTALL=ALL REINSTALLMODE=vomus /l* C:\temp\toolsinst.log /qn /norestart

The difference here is that only packages/modules which are already installed will be updated.

- REINSTALL=ALL Makes sure that all previously selected

packages/modules are updated

- REINSTALLMODE=vomus This option is highly important, since it is used to

force the installation of the new MSI

Also checking the log file will show if the update was successful. If everything worked as expected the last line of the log should be:

but it gets ended with No re-installation. please find attached log file
