by polfilm on August 14, 2012

I used this to install VMware tools to CentOS 6.2 on ESXi 4.1 Add VMware GPG keys: rpm –import http://packages.vmware.com/tools/keys/VMWARE-PACKAGING-GPG-DSA-KEY.pub rpm –import http://packages.vmware.com/tools/keys/VMWARE-PACKAGING-GPG-RSA-KEY.pub Edit /etc/yum.repos.d/vmware-tools.repo: [vmware-tools] name=VMware Tools baseurl=http://packages.vmware.com/tools/esx/4.1latest/rhel6/$basearch enabled=1 gpgcheck=1 Install VMware Tools: yum install vmware-open-vm-tools-nox vCenter should show “Unmanaged” – this means that CentOS package manager is responsible for updates.
