    socha6413 Lurker

      Hello.

      VMware ESXi 6.5.0 Build 7388607 & vCenter 6.5.0 Build 5973321 for Windows

      I have many Linux Guest OS with open-vm-tools.

       

      vCenter shows Not Running open-vm-tools, But vmtoolsd status is active (running) in Guest OS.

      open-vm-tools version is 10277.

      Cannot reinstall vmtools because of reboot.. & can't use backup solution

       

       

       

      here is vmware.log
