Upon Startup I would receive the warning:
The VMware Tools power-on script did not run successfully in this virtual machine. If you have configured a custom power-on script in this virtual machine, make sure that it contains no errors. You can also submit a support request to report this issue.
And upon shutdown, I would receive the warning:
The request to halt this virtual machine failed because the corresponding VMware Tools script did not run successfully. If you have configured a custom halt script in this virtual machine, please inspect it for errors; otherwise, please submit a support request.
Typically I use the repository's open-vm-tools, so i tried to reinstall them, but this did not resolve the issue. I uninstalled open-vm-tools and installed the vmware-tools from Fusion, but this did not resolve the issue either.
When i searched the repository, I noticed a new group of tools containing the keywords open-vm-tools-lts-trusty*, so I i uninstalled vmware-tools with the command:
I purged any instances of open-vm-tools like so:
sudo apt-get purge open-vm-tools*
I then installed the LTS version of the open-vm-tools:
sudo aptitude install open-vm-tools-lts-dkms open-vm-tools-lts-desktop open-vm-toolbox-lts-trusty
Upon reboot, I had no more warning and things worked as expected.
