Summary: Open Virtual Machine Tools
Open Virtual Machine Tools (open-vm-tools) are the open source
implementation of VMware Tools. They are a set of guest operating
system virtualization components that enhance performance and user
experience of virtual machines. As virtualization technology rapidly
becomes mainstream, each virtualization solution provider implements
their own set of tools and utilities to supplement the guest virtual
machine. However, most of the implementations are proprietary and are
tied to a specific virtualization platform.

With the Open Virtual Machine Tools project, we are hoping to solve
this and other related problems. The tools are currently composed of
kernel modules for Linux and user-space programs for all VMware
supported Unix-like guest operating systems. They provide several
useful functions like:

* File transfer between a host and guest

* Improved memory management and network performance under

* General mechanisms and protocols for communication between host and
guests and from guest to guest

* Tue Apr 04 2023
  - As per jsc-PED-1344, update spec file to only build the containerinfo
    plugin for TW/SLES 15 SP5 and newer.
* Tue Mar 28 2023
  - Update to 12.2.0 (build 21223074) (boo#1209128)
    - There are no new features in the open-vm-tools 12.2.0 release. This is
      primarily a maintenance release that addresses a few critical problems,
    - Linux quiesced snapshots have been updated to avoid intermittent hangs of
      the vmtoolsd process.
    - Updated the guestOps to handle some edge cases when File_GetSize() fails
      or returns -1.
    - A number of Coverity reported issues have been addressed.
    - Detect the proto files for the containerd grpc client in alternate
      locations.  Pull request #626
    - FreeBSD: Support newer releases and code clean-up for earlier versions.
      Pull request #584
    - Please refer to the release notes at
    - The granular changes that have gone into the 12.2.0 release are in the
      ChangeLog at
  - Update detect-suse-location.patch to remove upstream accepted portion of the
    patch (jsc-PED-1344).
* Wed Dec 28 2022
  - Migration of PAM settings to /usr/lib/pam.d.
* Wed Dec 14 2022
  - Don't list libgrpc++, libgrpc, and libprotobuf in the containerinfo Requires
    section.  The dependencies will be added automatically.
* Tue Dec 13 2022
  - Don't use new LDFLAGS, -labsl_synchronization -lgpr, when building for SLE.
* Mon Dec 12 2022
  - Add containerInfo plugin (jsc-PED-1344)
    - Add dependencies on grpc, protobuf, and containerd for container
  - Added patches (jsc-PED-1344)

* Thu Dec 08 2022
  - Add _service to handle open-vm-tools sources
  - Update to 12.1.5 (build 20735119) (boo#1205962)
    - A number of Coverity reported issues have been addressed.
    - The deployPkg plugin may prematurely reboot the guest VM before cloud-init
      has completed user data setup. If both the Perl based Linux customization
      script and cloud-init run when the guest VM boots, the deployPkg plugin
      may reboot the guest before cloud-init has finished. The deployPkg
      plugin has been updated to wait for a running cloud-init process to
      finish before the guest VM reboot is initiated. This issue is fixed in
      this release.
    - A SIGSEGV may be encountered when a non-quiesing snapshot times out.
      This issue is fixed in this release.
    - Unwanted vmtoolsd service error message if not on a VMware hypervisor.
      When open-vm-tools comes preinstalled in a base Linux release, the vmtoolsd
      services are started automatically at system start and desktop login.
      If running on physical hardware or in a non-VMware hypervisor, the services
      will emit an error message to the Systemd's logging service before stopping.
      This issue is fixed in this release.

  - Fixed bug (bsc#1172693) by removing the '' line from
    pam-vmtoolsd.patch as instructed by vmware (boo#1171003).
    This should fix both (boo#1171003) and (bsc#1172693).
* Wed Jun 03 2020
  - VMware has now asked that in updating to 11.1.0 (build 16036546) (boo#1171764)
    to hold off on producing the open-vm-tools-sdmp service discovery plugin
    (boo#1171765) for all SUSE versions due to the plugin's dependency on
    netstat.  Once they have removed the netstat dependency we will need to go
    through the ECO process to get the plugin added.
* Thu May 28 2020
  - While updating to 11.1.0 (build 16036546) (boo#1171764) hold off on
    producing the open-vm-tools-sdmp (boo#1171765 Service Discover plugin)

  - Update to 11.0.5 (build 15389592) (boo#1165955)
    + DNS server is reported incorrectly as '' when using
      systemd-resolved. DNS server is reported incorrectly in GuestInfo as
      '' , when the OS uses systemd-resolved. This issue is fixed
      in this release.
  - Conditionalized the use of systemd_ordering.  Use systemd_ordering
    for factory, openSUSE >= 15, and SLE >= 15.  Use systemd_requires
    for older openSUSE and SLE releases.

  - Drop unnecessary patch:
    - fix-leaks-Aliases-MappedAliases.patch
* Fri Jan 24 2020
  - BuildRequire pkgconfig(udev) instead of udev: allow OBS to
    shortcut through the -mini flavor.
  - Use systemd_ordering in place of systemd_requires: systemd is

      Include vmware/tools/log.h to define g_info.
* Tue Jan 29 2019
  - Update vmtoolsd.service to support cloud-init customization by default
    by adding "DefaultDependencies=no" and "Before=cloud-init-local.service"
    to the [Unit] section of vmtoolsd.service (bsc#1121964) .
  - Copyright year updated in spec file.
* Fri Nov 09 2018
  - Update to 10.3.5 (build 10430147) (boo#1115118)
    + While running a quiesced snapshot of a Linux guest on the vSphere hosts
      earlier than version 6.7, open-vm-tools logs warning messages.
    + CreateTemporaryFileInGuest/CreateTemporaryDirectoryInGuest returns a file
      path that does not exist.
    + Excessive spikes of the Memory/Workload percentage metric, in a vRealize
      Operations cluster.
    + open-vm-tools Service running as vmusr crashes on Linux systems which are
      not running on the VMware platform.
  - Drop unnecessary patch:
    - false-negative-cloud-init.patch
    - handle-linux-kernel-stat-overflow.patch
    - optional-override-os-name.patch
* Fri Oct 12 2018
  - Added Handle Linux kernel /proc FS uint32 type stat overflow when calculating
    + handle-linux-kernel-stat-overflow.patch
      On both 32-bit and 64-bit Linux, tools always parses Linux kernel /proc
      FS stats as uint64 values.  For rate stats, current - previous can handle
      uint64 type stat overflow, but not uint32 type.
  - Added patch for Optional override for short and long OS names sent from Tools
    + optional-override-os-name.patch
      Added support for customers to override the returned long and short OS
      names through the tools config file. If the setting is present, then names
      gathered by hostinfo will be ignored. The user is responsible for setting
      the appropriate names.
  - Added patch for Workaround for false negative result when detecting
    cloud-init existance (bsc#1111619)
    + false-negative-cloud-init.patch
      "cloud-init -v" cmd is used to detect if cloud-init is properly configured
      and it works on most linux distros. However in some linux distro like
      Amazon Linux 2, "cloud-init -v" will print result to stderr instead of
      stdout and it makes "forkExecAndWaitCommand" give false negative result.
      1. added a new bool switch in  "ForkExecAndWaitCommand" to choose
      if we should ignore the stderr output when the return code is 0
      2. removed unnecessary reference for "ForkExecAndWaitCommand" in
      3. trivial change for some formatting
* Wed Aug 15 2018
  - After updating the project to include openSUSE_Leap_15.0 and SLE_15, the
    builds for these two projects fail because of unresolved dependencies.
    Some Factory configuration settings were being used for them.  Need to adjust
    the spec file to not use Factory configuration settings for
    openSUSE_Leap_15.0 and SLE_15.
* Fri Aug 10 2018
  -  Remove vgauthd.service from the %pre and %post section in the spec file.
    This allows vmtoolsd.service to enable vgauthd if needed which creates
    the vmtoolsd.service.requires/vgauthd.service symlink. (bsc#1103868)
  - Add Requires: libxmlsec1-openssl1 to the spec file.  This is needed when
    using xmlsec1 rather than xml-ssecurity-c.
* Mon Aug 06 2018
  - Update to 10.3.0 (build 8931395)
    + Starting with 10.3.0, open-vm-tools builds with xmlsec1 by default (instead
      of building with xml-security). To revert to the old behavior and build
      with xml-security, use the option '--enable-xmlsecurity' for the
      ./configure command.
    + Add BuildRequires:  libxml2-devel
    + Add BuildRequires:  pkgconfig(xmlsec1) for all openSUSE builds
    + Use --enable-xmlsecurity when building for SLE
