The yumrepo cookbook has a vmware-tools recipe for RHEL/CentOS, which
installs the yum version of VMware-Tools from
It even cleans up previous manual installations from the VMware-Tools
tarball or RPM which ships with ESX.

I need a cookbook for installing paravirtualization tools for
various guests, whether running on top of virtualbox, KVM, or
vmware's ESX server.
Does that same functionality currently exist somewhere else? If
not i will polish version 0.0.1 of my 'virt-tools' cookbook w/
support for vmware-tools on CentOS.
