Summary: Open Virtual Machine Tools
Open Virtual Machine Tools (open-vm-tools) are the open source
implementation of VMware Tools. They are a set of guest operating
system virtualization components that enhance performance and user
experience of virtual machines. As virtualization technology rapidly
becomes mainstream, each virtualization solution provider implements
their own set of tools and utilities to supplement the guest virtual
machine. However, most of the implementations are proprietary and are
tied to a specific virtualization platform.

With the Open Virtual Machine Tools project, we are hoping to solve
this and other related problems. The tools are currently composed of
kernel modules for Linux and user-space programs for all VMware
supported Unix-like guest operating systems. They provide several
useful functions like:

* File transfer between a host and guest

* Improved memory management and network performance under

* General mechanisms and protocols for communication between host and
guests and from guest to guest

  - Update to 11.3.5 (build 18557794) (boo#1190987)
    + New/Updated features:
    - Added a configurable logging capability to the network script.
      The network script has been updated to:
      use vmware-toolbox-cmd to query any network logging configuration from
      the tools.conf file.  Use vmtoolsd --cmd "log ..." to log a message to
      the vmx logfile when the logging handler is configured to "vmx" or when
      the logfile is full or is not writeable.
    - The hgfsmounter (mount.vmhgfs) command has been removed from
      The hgfsmounter (mount.vmhgfs) command is no longer used in
      Linux open-vm-tools. It has been replaced by hgfs-fuse. Therefore,
      removing all references to the hgfsmounter in Linux builds.
    + Resolved issues:
    - Customization: Retry the Linux reboot if telinit is a soft link to
    - Open-vm-tools commands would hang if configured with "--enable-valgrind".
    + Spec file updates for:
    - rpmlint errors
    - arg_xmlsec1 --enable-xmlsec1 for better xmlsec1/libxml2 handling.
* Thu Jun 24 2021 Kirk Allan <>
  - Update to 11.3.0 (build 18090558) (boo#1187567)
    + Resolved issues:
    - The following github issues and pull requests have been resolved:
      446, 481, 500, and 509
    - The following Pull requests have been resolved: 474 and 505
    - A number of issues detected by Coverity, internally or by third parties,
      have been addressed.
    - A command line tool, vmwgfxctrl, has been added to open-vm-tools for
      Linux that can be used to control various aspects of the vmwgfx Linux
      kernel module.  Currently it can both display and set the current
      topology of the vmwgfx kernel driver. It is useful when trying to
      configure custom resolutions on recent Linux distributions, including
      multi-monitor setups.
    - A command line tool, vmware-alias-import, has been added to
      open-vm-tools that can be used to import vgauth config data and apply
      it to the running vgauth service.
    - Enhancements to support or utilize various vSphere features.
  - Fixed bug (bsc#1185175) In vmtoolsd.service move deprecated path
    "/var/run" to "/run" for it's PIDfile.
  - Update pam-vmtoolsd.patch to compensate for new line numbers.
  - Drop patch now contained in 11.3.0:

    - A number of Coverity reported errors and false positives have been
    - A complete list of the granular changes that are in the
      open-vm-tools 11.2.5 release is available at:
  - Update pam-vmtoolsd.patch: With the entry fixed, only need
    the modified portion of the patch which copies the suse file to
    the /etc/pam.d/vmtoolsd file rather than the default generic file.
* Wed Dec 02 2020 Guillaume GARDET <>
  - Enable build on aarch64
* Mon Nov 09 2020 Dominique Leuenberger <>
  - Add explicit pkgconfig(gdk-pixbuf-xlib-2.0) BuildRequires: used
    to be pulled in (as part of gdk-pixbuf) by GTK3 in the past. But
    as configure explicitly looks for it, it is our own duty to
    ensure its presence.

    pam-vmtoolsd.patch as instructed by vmware (boo#1171003).
    This should fix both (boo#1171003) and (bsc#1172693).
* Wed Jun 03 2020 Kirk Allan <>
  - VMware has now asked that in updating to 11.1.0 (build 16036546) (boo#1171764)
    to hold off on producing the open-vm-tools-sdmp service discovery plugin
    (boo#1171765) for all SUSE versions due to the plugin's dependency on
    netstat.  Once they have removed the netstat dependency we will need to go
    through the ECO process to get the plugin added.
* Thu May 28 2020 Kirk Allan <>
  - While updating to 11.1.0 (build 16036546) (boo#1171764) hold off on
    producing the open-vm-tools-sdmp (boo#1171765 Service Discover plugin)
    until it has gone through the ECO process.  Once approved, will resubmit
    to include the plugin.
* Fri May 15 2020 Kirk Allan <>
  - Update to 11.1.0 (build 16036546) (boo#1171764, boo#1171765)
    + open-vm-tools 11.1.0 includes a new 'Service Discovery' plugin, which
      connects with the vRealize Operations Manager product.  For more
      information and details on configuring this plugin, refer to Configuring
      Service Discovery.
    + In this release, a new tools.conf switch is added to enable and disable
      the guest customization in the guest virtual machine. By default, the
      guest customization is enabled. For more details, refer KB 78903.
  - Spec file changes to remove the is_opensuse macros where possible.
  - Remoed the mv vm-support line from the spec file.  vm-support is now
    automatically placed in the /usr/bin directory.
  - Added version number to Requires: libxmlsec1-openssl1 to help with vgauth
    version checking.
  - Added patches
    + pam-vmtoolsd.patch (boo#1171003)

    - app_info_plugin.patch
    - diskinfo-debug-logging-1162435.patch
    - gcc9-static-inline.patch
* Mon Mar 09 2020 Kirk Allan <>
  - Simplified the conditional around systemd_ordering to just use
    suse_version >= 1500.
* Fri Mar 06 2020 Kirk Allan <>
  - Update to 11.0.5 (build 15389592) (boo#1165955)
    + DNS server is reported incorrectly as '' when using
      systemd-resolved. DNS server is reported incorrectly in GuestInfo as
      '' , when the OS uses systemd-resolved. This issue is fixed
      in this release.
  - Conditionalized the use of systemd_ordering.  Use systemd_ordering
    for factory, openSUSE >= 15, and SLE >= 15.  Use systemd_requires
    for older openSUSE and SLE releases.
  - Conditionalize out the use of %license COPYING for SLE 12 SP2 and older.
  - Added patches
    + gcc10-warning.patch (boo#1160408)

  - Drop unnecessary patch:
    - fix-leaks-Aliases-MappedAliases.patch
* Fri Jan 24 2020 Dominique Leuenberger <>
  - BuildRequire pkgconfig(udev) instead of udev: allow OBS to
    shortcut through the -mini flavor.
  - Use systemd_ordering in place of systemd_requires: systemd is
    never strictly required to run open-vm-tools.

* Wed Mar 13 2019 kallan <>
  - Link VGAuthService to libxmlsec1 rather than libxml-security-c for
    SLES 15 and SLES 15 SP1. It requires libxmlsec1 to be available in the
    base.  VGAuthService is already being linked with libxmlsec1 for
    SLES 12 SP4.  (bsc#1122435)
* Tue Feb 26 2019 Martin Liška <>
  - Add gcc9-warnings.patch (bsc#1126102).

* Tue Jan 29 2019
  - Update vmtoolsd.service to support cloud-init customization by default
    by adding "DefaultDependencies=no" and "Before=cloud-init-local.service"
    to the [Unit] section of vmtoolsd.service (bsc#1121964) .
  - Copyright year updated in spec file.
* Fri Nov 09 2018
  - Update to 10.3.5 (build 10430147) (boo#1115118)
    + While running a quiesced snapshot of a Linux guest on the vSphere hosts
      earlier than version 6.7, open-vm-tools logs warning messages.
    + CreateTemporaryFileInGuest/CreateTemporaryDirectoryInGuest returns a file
      path that does not exist.
    + Excessive spikes of the Memory/Workload percentage metric, in a vRealize
      Operations cluster.
    + open-vm-tools Service running as vmusr crashes on Linux systems which are
      not running on the VMware platform.
  - Drop unnecessary patch:
    - false-negative-cloud-init.patch
    - handle-linux-kernel-stat-overflow.patch
    - optional-override-os-name.patch
* Fri Oct 12 2018
  - Added Handle Linux kernel /proc FS uint32 type stat overflow when calculating
    + handle-linux-kernel-stat-overflow.patch
      On both 32-bit and 64-bit Linux, tools always parses Linux kernel /proc
      FS stats as uint64 values.  For rate stats, current - previous can handle
      uint64 type stat overflow, but not uint32 type.
  - Added patch for Optional override for short and long OS names sent from Tools
    + optional-override-os-name.patch
      Added support for customers to override the returned long and short OS
      names through the tools config file. If the setting is present, then names
      gathered by hostinfo will be ignored. The user is responsible for setting
      the appropriate names.
  - Added patch for Workaround for false negative result when detecting
    cloud-init existance (bsc#1111619)
    + false-negative-cloud-init.patch
      "cloud-init -v" cmd is used to detect if cloud-init is properly configured
      and it works on most linux distros. However in some linux distro like
      Amazon Linux 2, "cloud-init -v" will print result to stderr instead of
      stdout and it makes "forkExecAndWaitCommand" give false negative result.
      1. added a new bool switch in  "ForkExecAndWaitCommand" to choose
      if we should ignore the stderr output when the return code is 0
      2. removed unnecessary reference for "ForkExecAndWaitCommand" in
      3. trivial change for some formatting
* Wed Aug 15 2018
  - After updating the project to include openSUSE_Leap_15.0 and SLE_15, the
    builds for these two projects fail because of unresolved dependencies.
    Some Factory configuration settings were being used for them.  Need to adjust
    the spec file to not use Factory configuration settings for
    openSUSE_Leap_15.0 and SLE_15.
* Fri Aug 10 2018
  -  Remove vgauthd.service from the %pre and %post section in the spec file.
    This allows vmtoolsd.service to enable vgauthd if needed which creates
    the vmtoolsd.service.requires/vgauthd.service symlink. (bsc#1103868)
  - Add Requires: libxmlsec1-openssl1 to the spec file.  This is needed when
    using xmlsec1 rather than xml-ssecurity-c.
* Mon Aug 06 2018
  - Update to 10.3.0 (build 8931395)
    + Starting with 10.3.0, open-vm-tools builds with xmlsec1 by default (instead
      of building with xml-security). To revert to the old behavior and build
      with xml-security, use the option '--enable-xmlsecurity' for the
      ./configure command.
    + Add BuildRequires:  libxml2-devel
    + Add BuildRequires:  pkgconfig(xmlsec1) for all openSUSE builds
    + Use --enable-xmlsecurity when building for SLE
  - Drop unnecessary patches
    - 100-libtirpc.patch
* Thu May 17 2018
  - Switch from sunrpc to libtirpc to enable building under
    glibc 2.27 in openSUSE Factory.
    (commit 375d4463c68be3a133e4377655b68cc090cd9511)
    + 100-libtirpc.patch
* Fri Apr 06 2018
  - Update to 10.2.5 (build 8068406) (boo#1089181)
    + Compatible with supported versions of VMware vSphere ESXi 5.5 and later,
      VMware Workstation 14.0 and VMware Fusion 10.0.0.
    + Quiesced snapshot: Ability to exclude specific file systems from
      quiesced snapshots on Linux guest operating systems. For more details,
      see [Documentation](
    + Disable display mode setting: A configuration option is introduced to
      disable normal display mode setting functionality using open-vm-tools.
      For more details, see [KB 53572](
  - Drop unnecessary patches
    - udev_rules-disk-devs-only.patch
* Tue Feb 13 2018
  - Stop depending on the meta-package xorg-x11-devel as
    BuildRequires, but use the explicit module names configure is
    looking for: pkgconfig(sm), pkgconfig(xcomposite),
    pkgconfig(xext), pkgconfig(xi), pkgconfig(xinerama),
    pkgconfig(xrandr), pkgconfig(xrender) and pkgconfig(xtst).
