Optionally skip VMware Tools removal

Optionally skip VMware Tools removal

Migrate offers the option to skip the installation of VMware Tools on the target machine, but does not allow the user to prevent the uninstall of VMware Tools if it's present. A work around is possible via the PlateSpin Configuration page, but this is complex and limits the Migrate server to a specific migration scenario only.

Migrate should expose in its UI the option to leave existing VMware tools alone where target platform is VMware.
