Hi guys,

just wanted to let you know I successfully updated from 4.11.1 to 4.11.3 on ESXi.

I also found a little trick to convert the vmdk format (you need at least 2 datastores & a vcenter for this to work):
Upload the vmdk file to datastore 1 and do a storage vmotion to datastore 2 changing the format of the disk… i.e. thick-provision eager zeroed

Before doing this, after configuring my VM to use the new disk, the VM wouldn’t boot and instead give me an error regarding the format of the vmdk. After the storage vmotion it booted just fine!

A little request: Would it be possible to include the VMware tools (open-vmtools) package in your next release? I tried for two hours now to install it via the SSH access, but this busybox sh*#!§ is giving me headaches…

Thanks for your great work!
