VyOS 1.5 open-vm-tools.service missing

Hi,

I have recently updated from VyOS 1.5-rolling-202401130024 to 1.5-rolling-202405060019 and noticed that the open-vm-tools.service seems to be missing.

VyOS 1.5-rolling-202405060019

root@vyos:~# systemctl status open-vm-tools.service
Unit open-vm-tools.service could not be found.

Is this a bug?

Thanks,

Fixed in 1.5-rolling-202405070019

So try updating your 1.5 install to above or newer and return with the result.

Thanks - that’s it.

I updated to VyOS 1.5-rolling-202405121403 and the open-vm-tools are working again.

I also posted a note on βš“ T6312 open-vm-tools missing in nightly-builds starting from version 1.5-rolling-202404220020 that it’s working again.
