Open-VM-Tools 1280544_11 reported as not running/installed on ESXI 6



  • With the 2.2.2 upgrade, package Open-VM-Tools 1280544_11 installed but ESXI 6 reported it as not running/ guest managed. I uninstalled the package, reboot, install package and reboot but now ESXI 6 reports it as not running/ not installed.

    Messages on the pfsense console indicate that the Open-VM-Tools package and services are started.

    Starting /usr/local/etc/rc.d/vmware-guestd.sh…done.
    Starting /usr/local/etc/rc.d/vmware-kmod.sh...done.

    Working properly with Open-VM-Tools 1280544_10, what am I missing?



  • Starting /usr/local/etc/rc.d/vmware-guestd.sh…done.
    Starting /usr/local/etc/rc.d/vmware-kmod.sh...done.

    Seems like the execute bits are set to off in my install. Running returns permission denied. Need to chmod +x to get it running properly.
