Why vmware tools install option is getting disable when selecting Guest OS version type as Cent OS 8 in Esxi server 6.7 and 7.0?

This post was originally published on this site

I have created Virtual machine in Esxi server 6.7 and 7.0 server and selected a Cent OS 8 as Guest OS version type while creating the VM.

When try to install the VMware install using VMRC then am getting “Install VMware tools” option disable. Please find the attachment for more details.

But i am able to install the VMware tools when selected the Guest OS version type Cent OS 7.

I don’t understand why am unable to install vmware tools when selected Guest OS version type as Cent OS 8.


Please help me out of this.


Thanks and regards,
