This page is about to install ESXi on bare metal and later install SME9.1 as one vm.

Install SME9.2 as a Centos6. Later you must install vmware-tools following this:

 rpm --import https://packages.vmware.com/tools/keys/VMWARE-PACKAGING-GPG-RSA-KEY.pub
 db yum_repositories set vmware-tools repository \
 Name 'VMWare Tools' \
 BaseURL 'https://packages.vmware.com/tools/esx/6.0u2/rhel6/$basearch' \
 EnableGroups no \
 GPGCheck yes \
 GPGKey https://packages.vmware.com/tools/keys/VMWARE-PACKAGING-GPG-RSA-KEY.pub \
 Visible no \
 status disabled

At this point install vmware tools

 signal-event yum-modify ; 
 yum --enablerepo=vmware-tools install vmware-tools-esx-kmods vmware-tools-esx-nox

At this point, vmware-tools will autostart

Verify the service is online after the reboot:

  /etc/vmware-tools/init/vmware-tools-services status

Should show something like

 #vmtoolsd is running
