Virtual Machine : VMware tools do not start automatically

Ce message est également disponible en : French

After updated a VM Linux (Centos) I realized that the VMware tools were not starting over automatically.

This post is based on the  KB : 2050592

You can follow these step to resolve the issue :

Log in to your virtual machine and locate the vmware-tools-config.pl file.

[root@test01 /]# find -name vmware-config-tools.pl
./usr/bin/vmware-config-tools.pl

Then execute the script et answer “Yes” to this question :

Would you like to enable VMware automatic kernel modules?
[no] -> YES

Restart your VM Et voila !
