comment Possible to install vmware tools 5.5 on Ubuntu 12.04?
I can't use the Power features in the right click menu on the VM's on those VM's that says "3rd party unsupported". However I don't see the vmtoolsd process either on my Ubuntu 12.04 VM's. How do you install the vmtools on Ubuntu 12.04?

This is very interesing. Can you show the output from rpm -qa|grep -i vmware and dpkg --get-selections|grep -i vmware if you have such?

@GeraldCombs Apparently VMware sees these a 3rd party tools, and doesn't expose the same functionality as their own. Although I don't understand why, as the open-vm-tools is also from VMware.

What I find strange is that on Solaris it creates an EFI partition when you make a ZFS pool. Why would it do that?

comment What does tcpdump “BOOTP/DHCP, Request from …” mean?
The host is a desktop computer, so it could be a firewall problem, as you say. There is a DHCP server on the network, and dhclient -r gives me a new IP, so it should be responding.
