      How do I know if our upgraded 11.3 instance of BMC Discovery on CentOS 6, is using/needs VMware tools or open-vm-tools?


      Is the following statement only accurate for 11.3 deployments on CentOS 7?


      In previous versions of BMC Discovery, VMware tools were required. VMware tools are no longer required for new deployments of BMC Discovery 11.3. They have been replaced with open-vm-tools which is installed and requires no configuration.
