We have about 100 VM servers. I've heard in the past that deploying VMTools from Kace can cause issues on the clients.

Is there a best practice method for deploying VMTools to servers?

Automation of VMTools installation can be found here:  http://pubs.vmware.com/vsphere-50/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.vmware.vmtools.install.doc%2FGUID-CD6ED7DD-E2E2-48BC-A6B0-E0BB81E05FA3.html

It may not be best to deploy as an application from a management tool.

  • Thanks! I was not keen on deploying VMTools from anything other than VMware. The method in your link works as well for the task at hand.
