(VMware)SolarisにVMwareToolsを入れてみる

VMware ESXi(vSphere5.1)に Solaris10 をインストールしたんですが、そのままだと最適なパフォーマンスは発揮してくれません。

Hyper-VでもHyper-V統合サービスという仮想化支援ツールをゲストOSに入れたように、VMwareでもVMwareToolsという仮想化支援ツールをゲストに入れてやる必要があります。

手順としては、vSphere Clietから仮想マシンを右クリック→ゲスト→VMwareTools のインストール/アップグレード を押下します。

そうすると、仮想マシンにVMwareToolsの入ったディスクが挿入さらたようになります。

Solarisの場合、自動でメディアがあったら自動マウントしてくれました。

後はメディア内のファイルを解凍し、インストールを実行します。

今回は全てデフォルト値で決定しました。

# cp /cdrom/vmwaretools/vmware-solaris-tools.tar.gz /Desktop

# cd /Desktop

# gzip -d vmware-solaris-tools.tar.gz

# tar xvf vmware-solaris-tools.tar

# cd vmware-solaris-tools-distrib

# ./vmware-install.pl

A previous installation of VMware Tools has been detected.

The previous installation was made by the tar installer (version 4).

Keeping the tar4 installer database format.

これでインストール完了です。

再起動とかもいらないようです。vSphere Client から確認してみると、インストール直後からVMware Tools が実行中になってました。

GUIコンソールでVMware Toolsを有効にするには一回ログオンし直す必要があるようです。

ログインし直すと、マウスカーソルもシームレスになり、いちいちコンソールから抜けるのに Ctrl+Alt を押す必要がなくなり楽になりました。
