Is there a way to install vMware tools on Cisco Prime Infrastructure 1.2. I know this can be done on LMS4.2. how about access to the shell like LMS4.2?
Have you tried the procedure cited in this thread?
It is for LMS but the process is generic enought that I'd think it would work with anuy of the Linux-based ADE-OS shell applications
has anybody tested the installation of VMwareTools in PI 1.2 or 1.3 ? I have tried it with the procedure described in the install guide of LMS 4.2 but it didn`t work.
Has anybody tested to migrate a maschine to an other cluster via VMotion ? Is it possible with Prime Infrstructure 1.2 or 1.3 ?
Installation should be pretty straightforward. Since it is running on supported platform.
ade # uname -a
Linux INTERNAL-NCS 2.6.18-238.1.1.el5 #1 SMP Tue Jan 4 13:32:19 EST 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
ade # cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.4 (Tikanga)
What you should do is:
1) Attach the vmware tools in vCenter or the Console.
2) Mount the media.
3) Install the vmware tools.
found out, that PI2 comes bundeled with prebuilt vmware-tools installed allready:
ade # modprobe -l | grep vm
ade # vmware-checkvm
VMware software version 6 (good)
ade # /usr/lib/vmware-tools/sbin64/vmware-hgfsmounter
ade # chkconfig --list | grep vmware
vmware-tools 0:off 1:off 2:on 3:on 4:off 5:on 6:off
ade # who -r

ade # locate vmtools-install.log
/opt/CSCOlumos/logs/vmtools-install.log ade # locate vmtools-install.log
I didnt installed vmware at this PI2-VA.
This was not preinstalled on ours though the files were there. We found the .gz install in this directory:
we copied the the file to tmp:
ade# cp /opt/CSCOlumos/tempInstallFiles/VMwareTools-8.6.5-621624.tar.gz /tmp
changed to that directory and unzipped the file
ade# tar zxvf VMwareTools-8.6.5-621624.tar.gz
and installed the file
ade# cd vmware-tools-distrib
and it is now running
ade # ps auxwww | grep vm
