I gave this command to install vmware tools
Get-VM VMname | update-Tools
I am getting error
"cannot complete operation because vmware tools is not running in this virtual machine"
but when i try to install using vsphere client its installing. Please help
This is really a question probably best answered by the folks at VMware, but my understanding is that Update-Tools can only UPDATE the tools, not initially install them.
