RedHat 7 on VMWare

If you want to run redhat on vmware you really want to have vmware tools installed so you can for instance move the vm between physical hosts with zero downtime.

This is all you need in order to set up vmware tools on RedHat 7 systems.

yum -y install open-vm-tools
systemctl start vmtoolsd.service
systemctl enable vmtoolsd.service
