vmware-tools Cookbook

Chef cookbook for installing vmware tools. Currently supports installation from source (default) or from VMWare's yum repo

Github: https://github.com/andrewfraley/chef-vmware-tools

Requirements

  • If you're going to install from source, you'll need the minimum requirements to build vmware tools. On a RHEL or CentOS system, you'll need: make gcc kernel-devel kernel-headers glibc-headers perl

  • This has only been tested on RHEL6, but should probably work on Debian/Ubuntu if building from source. On Ubuntu you'll need build-essential.

Attributes

Source Install (default)

  • node['vmware-tools']['url'] - URL to download the source tarball. No default.
  • node['vmware-tools']['version'] - Version of VMWare tools you're installing, e.g. "9.4.0". Used to prevent installing over automatically upgraded versions.
  • node['vmware-tools']['upgrade_only'] - When set to true (default), only install the specified version if it's newer than the installed version
  • node['vmware-tools']['src_path'] - Path to store the vmware-tools source. Default: /usr/local/src

RPM Install

  • node['vmware-tools']['graphical-tools'] - Set if you're running X
  • node['vmware-tools']['esx_version'] - Should correspond to directories seen here: http://packages.vmware.com/tools/esx/index.html
  • node['vmware-tools']['repo_base_url'] - ESX versions seen here: http://packages.vmware.com/tools/esx/
  • node['vmware-tools']['gpg_key_url'] - URL for the repo's gpg key. Default is set to VMWare's. Leave default unless you're using you're own yum repo

Usage

vmware-tools::default

The default recipe will install vmware-tools from source downloaded from a web server that you specify.

Example Role:
name "vmware-tools_role"
description "vmware-tools install"
run_list [
    "recipe[vmware-tools]",
    ]

default_attributes(
  "vmware-tools" => {
    "url" => "http://yourserver.local/vmware/latest-tools.tgz",
    "version" => "9.4.0"
  }
)

vmware-tools::rpm

This recipe will install vmware-tools from VMWare's yum repo. Do not include the default recipe if using this recipe.

Example Role:
name "vmware-tools-rpm_role"
description "vmware-tools rpm install"
run_list [
    "recipe[vmware-tools::rpm]",
    ]
 # Note you don't need to set any attributes
