I have a rather unusual situation. I just installed a Windows 2012R2 guest VM on my ESXi5.5 host in vCenter5.5.
vCenter says the following: VMtools is out of date on this VM
BUT, when I try to install VMTools, it reports that there is a later version of VMtools already installed so it does not complete the install.
How do I resolve this?
Try shutting down and starting the machine (powercycle).
The issue occurs because a soft reboot is not detected by VMware Tools.
