[PATCH v2] vmdk: allow specification of tools version

Posted by Thomas Weißschuh 1 week, 4 days ago
VMDK files support an attribute that represents the version of the guest
tools that are installed on the disk.
This attribute is used by vSphere before a machine has been started to
determine if the VM has the guest tools installed.
This is important when configuring "Operating system customizations" in
vSphere, as it checks for the presence of the guest tools before
allowing those customizations.
Thus when the VM has not yet booted normally it would be impossible to
customize it, therefore preventing a customized first-boot.

The attribute should not hurt on disks that do not have the guest tools
installed and indeed the VMware tools also unconditionally add this
attribute.
(Defaulting to the value "2147483647", as is done in this patch)
