    What is the impact of VMWare tools on being able to define a DFW rules with a VM name?

      On a previous assignment, I ran into an issue where once in a while a Distributed Firewall Rule would not be effective

      in permitting the intended traffic. The resolution would be to change from using the VM Name to using an IP

      address instead. At a later time we became pretty sure that the problem was related to some VMs not

      having been updated with the latest VMWare Tools.


      Does anyone have any more insight into this? Seen this issue? Is there a particular version of VMWare Tools where being

      able to use the VM name in your DFW rules becomes enabled?


      Thank you.
