Dont get vmware tools running on vsphere 5.1
i am trying to install vmware tools on my vsphere 5.1 host.
i installed pfsense 2.1 x64. went good. then i installed vmware tooles like in this howto: http://www.howtoforge.com/how-to-install-vmware-tools-on-pfsense-freebsd
i change the ftp link to my need (freebsd 8 and amd-64) no problem.
then i successfull installed vmware tools and the daemon was running. i changed to vmxnet3 and rebooted.
but now there is no daemon running. vmxnet3 is working but when i want to stark the daemon i get this:
VMware Tools is installed, but it has not been
(correctly) configured for the running kernel.
To (re-)configure it, invoke the following command:
when i stark the command:
Starting VMware Tools services in the virtual machine:
Switching to guest configuration: done
Guest memory manager: done
Guest operating system daemon: failed
Unable to start services for VMware Tools
is there any solutions?
I found the answer to this problem here:
The thing that I changed (not sure if it makes a difference) is to use "packages-8.3-release" since pfSense 2.1 is based on FreeBSD 8.3.
Oh yeah, that also says ftp-archive, don't put the -archive in the name.
