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 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.
