Description

Installs and configures vmware-tools using the tarball package that comes on the vmware ESX installation DVD.

This cookbook works quite differently from the yumrepo::vwmare-tools recipe which installs rpms from vmware's public repository.

Platform

  • RHEL, CentOS, Fedora
  • Debian, Ubuntu theoretically

Tested on RHEL 5 and RHEL 6

Attributes

default

  • node['esx']['version'] - version of ESX, this is automatically detected the default recipe but can be overriden
  • node['esx']['tarball'] - name of tarball
  • node['esx']['checksum'] - checksum for tarball

Recipes

default

This recipe requires that the attribute be set node['repo']['corp']['url']. The relevant tarball must located at the base of that path, for example:

http://repo.example.com/VMwareTools-4.0.0-208167.tar.gz

This value is best set in a role or in the node attributes.
