VMtools are not upgraded/updated

Hi,

In one of my customer environment, most of the VM's are not upgraded/updated to the lastest VM tools versions. I want to know whether this will have the impact of slowness of all the Virtual MAchines (VM guest).

I appreciate the valueable response in time.

memory ballooning and snapshot quiescing may not be available. why not just have it done mass via vmware update manager?

please read the above guide and there is a section called VMware Tools Upgrade to Match Host - that is what you need to do. In case you need step by step screenshots, here it is http://www.bujarra.com/?p=2990&lang=en
