  • no option for vmware tools installation

    I have 3.5i in the lab and just realised that there is no option for vmware tools installation I access this box from VI client and have few 2008 servers.

    Or I am blind or ....

    Where is it?
    Thx.

    its there for sure its on the right hand side, it should say install vmware tools (this is on the main window of a vm (not the console).

      Right click the VM and you should see the option to "Install VMware Tools" or possibly "End VMware Tools Installation"

        yee it should be there but it's not.
        Also, I guess there should be Virtual machine tab in console...
        No problem in virtual center. And I remember VI always remind you that VM Tools not installed it's recommended to install bla bla....

        So find me the option

            So you right click the VM in the left pane and there's no "Install/Upgrade VMware Tools in the context menu?

              Sorry for bugging the forum...
              Inventory tab--Virtual machine gives the same as right-click of highlited VM and sure INSTALL vm tools is there.

              I think I was looking right-click before and didn't see it...
              May be in previous version there was Virtual Machines tab.

              Thx.
