I'm running on lastest buld of vSphere 5.1u1 (1312873) and i have performed the installation of VMware Tools on a VM today, searching for that "experimental" option to enable. I did not see it: the sync driver is out of experimental so enabled by default or become unavailable?
in fact we have already tested in a couple of Linux VMs running MySQL the use of pre-freeze/post-thaw scripts t
My doubt about using the VMware Tools quiescence derives from the fact that one (of many) linux VM (Centos 6.x) which was backed up with quiescence enabled this night has "crashed" (system not responsive, needing a power cycle to restart it). I need to do a deeper analysis about this fact, which worries me a bit.
