Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The VMware Tools is a driver pack that installs things like network, keyboard, mouse, and video drivers. To install the VMware tools in the vSphere client right click on the Virtual Machine and you should see an option to “Install VMware Tools”.

    VMware Tools is a suite of utilities that enhances the performance of the virtual machine’s guest operating system and improves management of the virtual machine. Installing VMware Tools in the guest operating system is vital. Although the guest operating system can run without VMware Tools, you lose important functionality and convenience.
