I have been trying to figure out why VMWare tools will not install, as well as having a few other issues within VMware tools. When I logged into the back end I ran an LS and noticed that /store is pointing to a volume that does not exist any longer. Previously I was getting an error message in /vmfs/volumes with an input/output error for those drives. That went away when I rescanned from the UI but I still have these broken links. I figure I could run
ln -s store 5151fd26-9729e42c-6d38-6805ca118a0a but I am not sure if it matters which hard drive I link them to. I am mostly using datastore 1, but I would like some confirmation before I do anything an break my VMware.
Well the quick fix is to delete the simlinks then restart the host. It then recreated everything properly.
