The VMware Tools configuration utility is a command-line interface that you can use in the guest operating system to modify VMware Tools settings, shrink virtual disks, connect and disconnect virtual devices.
The VMware Tools configuration utility provides a command-line interface for functionality that was previously available only in the VMware Tools control panel. The name of this program depends on the guest operating system.
|Guest Operating System||Utility|
|Mac OS X||
Because the VMware Tools installer does not modify any PATH environment variables on Mac OS X operating systems, you must type ./ before the command.
|Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris||vmware-toolbox-cmd|
