    VMTools Service Time outs errors

      We recently had a P2V migration for a bunch of 2008 R2 Servers. Now we are experiencing daily instances of VMTools service timeouts everyday.


      Although this has no disruption to the service but I would aappreciate if someone can throw some light if I can set up some logging to troubleshoot this further.


      VMware Tools for Windows (Version 8.6.5 Build 652272)
