Installing and Configuring VMware Tools provides information about using the various VMware products to. install upgrade and configure VMware Tools, IMPORTANT Beginning with vSphere 5 5 all information about how to install and configure VMware Tools. in vSphere is merged with the other vSphere documentation For information about using VMware Tools in. vSphere search the vSphere documentation Installing and Configuring VMware Tools is not relevant to. vSphere 5 5 and later, VMware Tools is a suite of utilities that you install in the operating system of a virtual machine VMware. Tools enhances the performance of a virtual machine and makes possible many of the ease of use features in. VMware products For example the following features are just some of the features that are available only if. VMware Tools is installed, n Significantly faster graphics performance and Windows Aero on operating systems that support Aero.
n The Unity feature which enables an application in a virtual machine to appear on the host desktop like. any other application window, n Shared folders between host and guest file systems. n Copying and pasting text graphics and files between the virtual machine and the host or client desktop. n Improved mouse performance, n Synchronization of the clock in the virtual machine with the clock on the host or client desktop. n Scripting that helps automate guest operating system operations. Not all features are supported on all guest operating systems or in all VMware products. Intended Audience, This information is intended for anyone who wants to install upgrade or configure VMware Tools in a. virtual machine The information in this book is written for experienced Windows or Linux system. administrators who are familiar with virtual machine technology and datacenter operations. VMware Inc 5, Installing and Configuring VMware Tools. 6 VMware Inc, Updated Information, This Installing and Configuring VMware Tools documentation is updated with each release of the product or.
when necessary, IMPORTANT Beginning with vSphere 5 5 all information about how to install and configure VMware Tools. in vSphere is merged with the other vSphere documentation For information about using VMware Tools in. vSphere search the vSphere documentation Installing and Configuring VMware Tools is not relevant to. vSphere 5 5 and later, This table provides the update history of the Installing and Configuring VMware Tools documentation. Revision Description, 000478 03 n Removed information about log rotateSize from Chapter 6 Security Considerations for Configuring. VMware Tools on page 47 This property can no longer be set on a per virtual machine level. 000478 02 n This topic Chapter 6 Security Considerations for Configuring VMware Tools on page 47 provides. the correct sample values for configuring the virtual machine log size. 000478 01 Initial release, VMware Inc 7, Installing and Configuring VMware Tools. 8 VMware Inc, Components of VMware Tools 1, VMware Tools is a suite of utilities that enhances the performance of a virtual machine Although a guest.
operating system can run without VMware Tools many VMware features are not available until you install. VMware Tools, This chapter includes the following topics. n VMware Tools Service on page 9, n VMware Tools Device Drivers on page 10. n VMware User Process on page 11, VMware Tools Service. The VMware Tools service starts when the guest operating system boots The service passes information. between host and guest operating systems, This program which runs in the background is called vmtoolsd exe in Windows guest operating systems. vmware tools daemon in Mac OS X guest operating systems and vmtoolsd in Linux FreeBSD and Solaris. guest operating systems The VMware Tools service performs the following tasks. n Passes messages from the host to the guest operating system except in Mac OS X guest operating. n Runs scripts that help automate guest operating system operations The scripts run when the power. state of the virtual machine changes, n Synchronizes the time in the guest operating system with the time on the host except in Mac OS X.
guest operating systems, n In Windows guest operating systems allows the pointer to move freely between the guest and the. vSphere client or the Workstation Fusion or Player host operating system. On Linux guest operating systems that run Xorg 1 8 and later this functionality is available as a. standard feature, n In Windows and Mac OS X guest operating systems fits the screen display resolution of the guest to the. screen resolution of the vSphere client or the Workstation Fusion or Player host if running in full. screen mode If running in windowed mode fits the screen resolution of the guest to the size of the. window on the client or host This functionality is performed by the VMware Tools service container. n In Windows guest operating systems helps create the quiesced snapshots used by certain backup. applications This feature applies to vSphere, n In Linux Solaris and FreeBSD guest operating systems executes commands in the virtual machine. when you shut down or restart the guest operating system. VMware Inc 9, Installing and Configuring VMware Tools. n Is one of the processes that sends a heartbeat to the VMware product to indicate that the guest. operating system is running When the virtual machine runs under vSphere or VMware Server a gauge. for this heartbeat appears in the management interface. n Provides support for guest operating system bound calls created with the VMware VIX API except in. Mac OS X guest operating systems, VMware Tools Device Drivers.
Device drivers smooth mouse operations make VMware features such as folder sharing available and. improve sound graphics and networking performance If you do a custom VMware Tools installation or. reinstallation you can choose which drivers to install. Which drivers are installed when you install VMware Tools also depends on the guest operating system and. the VMware product The following device drivers can be included with VMware Tools. SVGA driver This virtual driver enables 32 bit displays high display resolution and. significantly faster graphics performance When you install VMware Tools a. virtual SVGA driver replaces the default VGA driver which allows for only. 640 X 480 resolution and 16 color graphics, On Windows guest operating systems whose operating system is Windows. Vista or later the VMware SVGA 3D Microsoft WDDM driver is installed. This driver provides the same base functionality as the SVGA driver and it. adds Windows Aero support, SCSI driver Included with VMware Tools is the VMware Paravirtual SCSI driver for use. with paravirtual SCSI devices Drivers for other storage adapters are either. bundled with the operating system or they are available from third party. For example Windows Server 2008 defaults to LSI Logic SAS which. provides the best performance for that operating system In this case the LSI. Logic SAS driver provided by the operating system is used. Paravirtual SCSI driver This driver is for VMware Paravirtual SCSI adapters which enhance the. performance of some virtualized applications, VMXNet NIC drivers The vmxnet and vmxnet3 networking drivers improve network performance. Which driver is used depends on how you configure device settings for the. virtual machine Search the VMware Knowledge Base for information on. which guest operating systems support these drivers. When you install VMware Tools a VMXNet NIC driver replaces the default. vlance driver, Mouse driver The virtual mouse driver improves mouse performance This driver is. required if you use some third party tools such as Microsoft Terminal. Audio driver This sound driver is required for all 64 bit Windows guest operating systems. and 32 bit Windows Server 2003 Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista. guest operating systems if you use the virtual machine with VMware Server. Workstation or Fusion, Kernel module for The host guest file system module called hgfs sys on Windows guest.
sharing folders operating systems and vmhgfs on Linux and Solaris is required to use the. virtual machine with Workstation or Fusion and share folders between hosts. and guests, 10 VMware Inc, Chapter 1 Components of VMware Tools. vmblock Module Used in Workstation and Fusion this module is essential for drag and drop. copy operations between hosts and guests, vShield Endpoint If you use vSphere and vShield you can now perform a custom VMware. Tools installation to install the vShield Endpoint Thin Agent component. vShield Endpoint uses the hypervisor to perform antivirus scans without a. bulky agent This strategy avoids resource bottlenecks and optimizes. memory use For more information see the vShield Quick Start Guide. ThinPrint driver This driver enables the virtual printing feature on Microsoft Windows virtual. machines With virtual printing printers added to the operating system on. the client or host appear in the list of available printers in the guest operating. system No additional printer drivers must be installed in the virtual. Memory control driver This driver is available and recommended if you use VMware vSphere. Excluding this driver hinders the memory management capabilities of the. virtual machine in a vSphere deployment, Modules and drivers If the guest operating system is Windows Vista Windows Server 2003 or. that support making other newer Windows operating systems a Volume Shadow Copy Services. automatic backups of VSS module is installed For other older Windows operating systems the. virtual machines Filesystem Sync driver is installed These modules allow external third party. backup software that is integrated with vSphere to create application. consistent snapshots During the snapshotting process certain processes are. paused and virtual machine disks are quiesced, VMCI and VMCI Sockets The Virtual Machine Communication Interface driver allows fast and. drivers efficient communication between virtual machines Developers can write. client server applications to the VMCI Sock vsock interface to make use of. the VMCI virtual device, VMware User Process, With the VMware user process you can use such features as copy and paste drag and drop and Unity with.
VMware products that support these features, This process starts automatically when you log in to a Windows guest operating system or on Linux when. you start a Desktop Environment session but you can also start it manually. The program file for this process is called vmtoolsd exe on Windows guest operating. Updated Information This Installing and Configuring VMware Tools documentation is updated with each release of the product or when necessary IMPORTANT Beginning with vSphere 5 5 all information about how to install and configure VMware Tools
