    Hi Avinash,
    I just enabled by vSphere and it worked properly. It got in running (Current) status.
    What´s the difference enabling by vSphere or SSH client?

  3. Claudio says:

    VMware Tools are specialized drivers for virtual hardware that is installed in the UC applications when they are running virtualized.
    “It is very important that the VMware tools version running in the UC application be in sync with the version of ESXi being used”.

    Is it mandatory to enable in both ways?
