    VMware Tools on Windows Server 2019, VMware Tools is not installed on this virtual machine

    DeltaV Novice

      Hello,

       

      We are running vSphere 6.7.0.2 and our ESXi hosts are 6.5.0.

       

      I have installed Server 2019 Core, installed VMware Tools, but vSphere is reporting "VMware Tools is not installed on this virtual machine." Which means that we are unable to do things like, Shutdown guest os, see the IP of the VM, etc. The network is working with VMXNET 3, so I believe the drivers are working like they should in the OS. We are also unable to do OS Customizations when cloning, which I think is due to VMWare Tools not being detected. Does anyone know the fix?

       

      Thanks,

      Chris
