rhel7: Open VM Tools - please include deploypkg
- In order create a template that is customizable on deployment, it is necessary to manually install the open-vm-tools-deploypkg package from the VMWare repositories in addition to the open tools provided by Redhat from the following repo VMware RHEL7
- I am using VMware repositories to retrieve open-vm-tools-deploypkg on RHEL7, trying to update to RHEL7.2 I see this issue:
