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 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.
