vmware tools upgrade
Posted on 2013-11-28
I am currently working on some settings to ease my upgrade of VM's after upgrading vSphere.
I have seen, but never used the "Check and upgrade Tools during power cycling" on virtual machines in production. Any concerns or tips here other than that you don't get a snapshot / rollback possibility while using this option?
This will surely help me as windows operating systems will be rebooted during maintenance windows and therefore also upgraded to newest vmware tools available.
How do you do this in your environments without sitting night after night remediating batches of VM's? 150-400 VM's. Linux will still be done manually or through update manager due to RHEL.
I see this as something good for me, unless you have seen any downside with using this option.
Looking forward to hearing from you, thank :)
