Open VM Tools package¶
There is no web GUI, the services are automatically started at boot time.
There are two portions of this package, the vmware-guestd process and the kernel modules.
Navigate to Diagnostics > Command, and in Execute shell command, enter the following:
ps uxawww | grep vmtoolsd
Output similar to the following will be shown:
$ ps uxawww | grep vmtoolsd 1026 ?? Ss 0:20.84 /usr/local/bin/vmtoolsd -c /usr/local/share/vmware-tools/tools.conf -p /usr/local/lib/open-vm-tools/plugins/vmsvc 19157 ?? SN 0:00.00 sh -c ps ax|grep vmware 19159 ?? RN 0:00.00 grep vmware (sh)
As long as vmtoolsd is shown in the output, it is working.
