I just installed a fresh openSuSE 13.2 VM onto ESXi 6. I did the VMware-install.pl process and it completes successfully, reporting as installed. However, both our monitoring software (What's Up Gold) and VSphere itself report that VMWare-Tools is not installed.
I've rebooted, uninstalled, reinstalled, rebooted some more, etc. Seems like perhaps I'm missing some secret setup trick, but I've installed this version of openSuSE, with VMWare-Tools, on previous versions of ESXi with no problems. Other openSuSE VMs installed previously have survived the ESXi 5.5 to 6 upgrade intact (no VMWare Tools issues there). Is there a change required for fresh openSuSE VMs in ESXi 6.0?
