  • 1.  VMWare tools issue during the installation

    Posted Mar 31, 2020 01:14 PM

    Hello,

    I have an issue when try to install (first installation) of VMware Tools on a VMware VM on ESXi and VCenter 6.7 after converted the HDD from VHD file.

    VMWare tools setup returns this error for some components

    "vmware tools setup failed to install the vmxnet driver automatically" and also for vmci driver...

    I have converted and created 12 vms from the vhd files but only this vm has this problem.

    Can you help me to solve this please?

    Thanks
