VMware tools version

Hello,

I have installed nWorks 5.7.
I am looking for a report/view about the VMware tools version?
Is it listed somewhere?

Thanks,
Dom

Hello,
I have the nWorks 5.7 management pack deployed and it clearly shows the VM Tools version under in the details view under monitoring, VMware virtual machine, _VMstate.
But It shows
- version 8300 in SCOM for a local about Version 8.3.12, build 493255 (this one seems showing a partial version)
or
- version 213532 for a local about Version 3.5.0, build-213532 (this one is showing the build number)
anything wrong or was it a chnage within the version in VMtools and MPs?
Thanks,
Dom

Hi Dom,

we do rely on the VMTools version as provided by vCenter, through the VMware API. We did not change our method of collecting this between 5.6 and 5.7 nworks.

However a topolgy rebuild will make sure that all your VM properties are refreshed and current. Could you press the 'Rebuild Full Topology' button in the nworks UI (select root node of Enterprise Manager tree), wait for rebuild to complete, then check the VMTools version again? Let us know how it goes!

Cheers
Alec
