Vyatta VC 6 - Final with VMware Tools Included

Hi Everyone,

Vyatta Released VC 6.0 late last month and although it did include OpenVM-tools which is great, there are a few people out there (myself included) who really want a VM to come already included with VMware tools and VMxnet3 especially performance matters at all to you :)

Sorry for the delay in getting this out, however compiling VMware tools for the Vyatta 2.6.31 custom kernel was not as easy as I had planned.

Here is the listing with VMware:

and here is the direct link:
VyattaVC6-Final.zip

And once you have downloaded it, why not give one of my labs ago here


Enjoy!

Thank for the info.

Do you have a lab that deals with vlans (vif) and ospf?

Only OSPF ..I can do one if you think it would be useful?

Can you please update Vyatta VC6 - Final so that VMware Tools work with ESXi 4.1. VMware Tools is 'Out of Date' with ESXi 4.1.

Working on it atm.

As View 4 is not supported with vcenter 4.1. I might wait until view 4.5 comes out
