Working on my Win2K16 VMware template. Been a bit painful. I installed VMware Tools and restarted but still saw this in the vSphere Web Client.
Odd. I checked the running services and there was only one and it was something about alias. I knew I installed the tools and restarted so WTF. Nothing in Google.
So, I have had some issues with Win2K16, and it has been a long day. So I uninstalled the tools, and restart. But this time, when I install the tools, I click on setup64 and do the Run as Admin, and before I restart my VMware Tools message is gone. After the restart, I check to see what VMware services are installed.
So there is three instead of 1. And the message about VMware Tools not installed is gone. So all good. But, now I have to remember that for Win2K16 I need to install VMware Tools using the Run as Admin. I should mention I am in fact working as Administrator right now too.
Not sure what changed.
