Enable VMWareTools for MailCleaner server with open-vmware-tools and open-vmware-tools-desktop
If you plan to install MailCleaner virtual appliance on your VMWare infrastructure you will need to install VMWare Tools.
# Connect your MailCleaner trought SSH as root apt-get update apt-get install open-vm-tools open-vm-tools-desktop
Currently there are no restrictions regarding support from VMware. VMware recommends using open-vm-tools instead of VMware tools as outlined in this article: (https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/2073803)
Eliminates the need to separately install VMware Tools when open-vm-tools is bundled with the operating system because open-vm-tools is a fully-supported open source implementation of VMware Tools.
