Disable certain unexposed features VMX24

Please advice solution for scan results i got from VMware compliance checker..For Esxi 4.1

 VMX24 - Disable certain unexposed features

Because VMware virtual machines are designed to work on both vSphere as well as hosted virtualization platforms such as Workstation and Fusion, there are some VMX parameters that don't apply when running on vSphere. Although the functionality governed by these parameters is not exposed on ESX, explicitly disabling them will reduce the potential for vulnerabilities.

According to the PDF hanccocka provides this warning has to do with the transafer of file from the guest os and host. This is used for feature such ast Vmtool installs.

Like with an security scan you have to view the results as to how the highlight issues really affect your company.  What I'm trying to say is the secure requirements for a hospital would differ from that of a school district...  If locking down your environment prevents users from doing their jobs then in reality what have you gained by locking down your environment.

Hope this makes sense..

this is something m looking for one of setup there @ financial company.

just wanna confirm if this is fine to be applied 2 Esxi 4.1
If you have a test ESXi host you may want to applied it to these servers first instead of your production servers to make sure the change does what you hope.

Just a suggestion.
