VMware ESXi5已经发生了很大的变化,VMware公司已经为各大发行版打包了vmware-tools,避免的过去的tarball安装方式。

$ sudo vim /etc/yum.repos.d/vmware.repo
[vmware-tools]
name=VMware Tools for Red Hat Enterprise Linux $releasever - $basearch
baseurl=http://packages.vmware.com/tools/esx/latest/rhel6/$basearch

gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=http://packages.vmware.com/tools/keys/VMWARE-PACKAGING-GPG-RSA-KEY.pub

$ sudo yum -y install vmware-tools-esx.x86_64 vmware-tools-esx-kmods.x86_64
