iPrint Appliance on VMware ESXi 5.x and VMware Tools

I've been running the appliance for a couple of days in my lab environment and noticed that it does not have vmware-tools running on it. VMware version is listed on 7 and I can't seem to be able and install tools. I have deployed it using the OVF template.

If anyone has any quick fixes to get vmware-tools installed, please let me know.

Thanks,
Dariusz

Just like the Filr appliance (they're built the same way), you should be
able to install the VMware Tools plus upgrade the VMware version (if
running on ESXi 5.x).

Perhaps this thread in the Filr support forum will help?

Thanks Simon, it worked like a charm. Didn't see the Filr post.

Also, after installing VMware Tools you can upgrade the hardware
version. Just make sure to power off the VM first as you can't upgrade
the hardware version while the machine is running or suspended.
