Enable ETH0 on VMWare Cent OS and install VMWare tools

#dhclient eth0 -v

Installing VMware tools on Centos 6 via yum

create the file /etc/yum.repos.d/vmware.repo and we place this text in it:

[vmware-tools]
name=VMware Tools for Red Hat Enterprise Linux $releasever – $basearch
baseurl=http://packages.vmware.com/tools/esx/latest/rhel6/$basearch
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=http://packages.vmware.com/tools/keys/VMWARE-PACKAGING-GPG-RSA-KEY.pub

If we installed previously VMware tools via the local vSphere, we will need to remove them using /usr/bin/vmware/vmware-uninstall-tools.pl

We can now install VMware tools via yum:

yum install vmware-tools-esx-nox
