Hi... I'm trying XSIBackup-NAS, see (c)XSIBackup-NAS Help Man Page. When the appliance is implemented ESXi says "VMWare tools not installed". I installed open-vm-tools using the command sudo yum install open-vm-tools. It was installed bun the (c)ESXi still says "VMWare tools not installed". My objetive is to saftely shutdown the OS when i restart the server (OS shutdown).
Sometimes ESXi can fail to detect open-vm-tools, which is the package that should be installed in RHEL/CentOS/Fedora and other Linux distros.
You need to make sure the service is not only installed but also running.
