Deploy Integration Tools on Linux for ESX

Q. I'm trying to install VMware Integration Tools on a Linux distribution but I cannot run the .pl file to install.

A. Follow the instructions at https://www.vmware.com/support/ws5/doc/ws_newguest_tools_linux.html however your Linux distribution may not have PERL or IFCONFIG installed (which is required). To solve run the following commands to install the required packages.

To mount use:

mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /media

Then untar following the instructions previously mentioned and the commands below will deploy the PERL and networking tools if required.

yum install perl -y
yum install net-tools -y

If you have no network connectivity try running ifup eth0 to enable the adapter.
