To install VMware Tools on Debian Wheezy 7.3 we have install gcc, make, and linux hearders packages first (can be installed from the DVD source) apt-get install gcc make linux-header* linux-kbuild*
Mount the VMware Tools iso mount /dev/cdrom /mnt
Extract the tool cd /mnt
tar xvf VMware* -C /tmp
Install VMware Tools cd /tmp/vmware-tools-distrib
Note: If we clone a VM on vSphere and see the VMware Tools status as Current (not running), then we need to rerun the VMware Tools config after cloning /usr/bin/vmware-config-tools.pl
After that, check if we can see the IP of the VM.
