    Ciao 

    There are versions of VMware tools that are not injected into ESXi builds (for some time now, VMware tools have a life of their own)

    In this link, you can see what I am telling you 
    https://packages.vmware.com/tools/versions

    Some versions of VMware Tools can be downloaded separately and here you can see the compatibility:

    and here is how to install them

    I have to say that it is correct that they are current because what is present in the infrastructure
