How to Install VMware Tools to Centos via YUM repository

By polfilm,

I used this to install VMware tools to CentOS 6.2 on ESXi 4.1

Add VMware GPG keys:

rpm --import
rpm --import

Edit /etc/yum.repos.d/vmware-tools.repo:

name=VMware Tools

Install VMware Tools:

yum install vmware-open-vm-tools-nox

vCenter should show “Unmanaged” – this means that CentOS package manager is responsible for updates.
