Installing VMware Tools in Openfiler

I use Openfiler frequently for labs as well as NAS services. Although there are VMware appliances for Openfiler, I commonly build the latest version from an ISO.

I have seen people add gcc to the Openfiler distro and install VMware Tools from scratch, but you can easily add the rpath's open vm tools package from the command line.

Once you have installed Openfiler and it boots, simply log in the console as root and enter the following command to install open vm tools:

conary update open-vm-tools

From here, you simply reboot with:

shutdown -r now
