vSRX on ESXi - Can't Install VMware Tools

‎06-10-2020 07:04 AM
 

Hello All, 

 

I guess i'm an idiot, but is there a specific way you have to install vmware tools on the vSRX images? 

 

I have a ticket open with JTAC, but I've been on hold for a half hour so...figured I'd ask you guys. 

 

Thoughts?

Hi RoutingFrames, 

 

Greetings, 

 

As per my understanding you would want to install the VMware tools installed on the vSRX node.

I guess there is a KB to upgrade the VMWare tools on vSRX which might be of help.(This has a install/upgrade option)

Hope this helps. Smiley Happy

Hey, 

 

I've tried that, but I don't get the "auto install" option, I just get the mount CD/DVD drive. 

 

Is there someway to run that drive and install in the linux shell?

I seem to have learned that only on vSRX 2.0 (linux based) VMware tools can be installed, but not for vSRX 3.0 (BSD based).  Ulf

Ahhhh, that might be the problem.

 

I'll try some links that someone else posted.
