guys, i'm using the vsphere client to go onto the server 2008 installed on ESXi, however the mouse is very annoying when you try to click inside the console window and is delayed. Where can I find the tools to install to rectify this issue?

Also, the keyboard settings inside of server 2008 have been set to United Kingdom, but then when we type it's US settings. Do I have to change this within ESXi itself?

Thanks again
Yash

Open the console of the VM, click VM-Guest-Install/Upgrade VMware Tools.

That will connect the VMware Tools ISO to the VM, which should autorun and you just click next a few times to install it.  If it does not autorun, open the CDROM drive of the VM and run the setup.

The install requires a reboot.

You need to change the settings for System Locale in the Virtual Machine.

You may even find after installing VM Tools, the mouse movement is not very good. If this is the case I would recommend using RDP (if allowed) to manage the virtual machine remotely.

System Locale = Keyboard Settings, I didn't make it clear.
