Installing Open-VM-Tools

To optimize and speed up the work of virtual machines running VMWare, the Open-VM-Tools software solution is used. Let’s take a closer look at the installation for different operating systems.




We update the current state of the programs to the latest via apt-get.

The Open-VM-Tools package is installed using standard OS tools. We are waiting for the end of the operation, after which the solution is available for work:

sudo apt-get install open-vm-tools



We are updating the product database.

Installation is done through the standard YUM command.

There are differences for CentOS 6 versions. After installing OVT, start the service:

yum -y install open-vm-tools



Now let’s add it to autoload:

chkconfig vmtoolsd on




Everything is simple here. We type in the terminal:

pkg install open-vm-tools



The process will take some time. After that, the administrator will have access to full functionality.
