open-vm-tools for DSM6?


Recommended Posts



I have XPEnology running as a VM on my ESXi (6u2) host. Works fine.

However, last night i rebooted the ESXi host. This made the XPEnology VM shutdown hard. When i opened the DSM GUI, i got a warning that my RAID1-array was degraded :shock: It took 5 hours to rebuild (2x 2TB in RAID1) and is now all OK again.


To prevent this in the future, i would like to have open-vm-tools package installed, so ESXi can shutdown XPEnology cleanly. Which version can i use with DSM 6.0.2-8451 Update 3 ? I found some open-vm-tools bromolow, but these seem quite old (March 2015). Is it safe to use these, or does anyone have a newer version that is recommended for DSM6?


Edit: I have installed 'open-vm-tools_bromolow-5.1_9.10.0-2476743-1.spk' which seems to work OK. But i am still interested if a newer version is available.
