The functionality is still there, but the UI has been removed from the Tools interface. We will look up where to put the scripts and provide you with the correct place on the guest file system.
See page 34 of the PDF at:
That said, the scripts sections are being revised right now because the Linux ones work slightly differently than documented in the above-mentioned PDF. For non-Windows versions of the scripts, look in the PDF to find the location of the scripts files, and then open the scripts files with a text editor and read the instructions inside the scripts themselves.
that helped but it has been more than 1 week now that i have been trying the suspend and resume scripts are not called during the suspend/resume operation of the VM
any other ideas?
like akarian said, you need to use the CLI in the latest version of vmware tools
The tool exists at %PROGRAMFILES%\VMWare\VMWare Tools\VMwareToolboxCmd.exe
There are 4 types of scripts:
You can see the current script used by running (replace <type> with thetype from above)
VMwareToolboxCmd.exe scripts <type> current
You can enable/disable the script by using
VMwareToolboxCmd.exe scripts <type> enable
VMwareToolboxCmd.exe scripts <type> disable
You can set a new one by using
VMwareToolboxCmd.exe scripts <type> set <newpath>
One important note - the "enable" subcommand will have a side-effect of resetting the script to the default location, so if you have a custom script, remember to do a "set" after "enable"!
