Openvmtool issue

we are using vyos in vmware environment , recently one of my our team memeber upgraded the openvmtools with vmware tools by clicking on the upgrade vmwaretools option provided by vmware.

is it possible to remove the vmware tools and install back openvmtools.

Hello @senthilnaidu,

You can try doing it this way:

From VMware docs ([VMware Knowledge Base]):
To remove VMware Tools installation packages, run:

rm /tmp/VMwareTools-version.tar.gz
rm -rf /tmp/vmware-tools-distrib

From copy repos to the /etc/apt/sources.list file

And Install Open VM Tools:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install open-vm-tools-desktop
sudo apt-get install open-vm-tools
