VM Advanced ISO. Free Tools For Advanced Tasks

I have compiled a list of free VMware vSphere tools that any administrator can use. I even made a Top 10 list out of that. But what about some more advanced tasks?

 

Look no further. I've created a collaboration of, yet again, FREE TOOLS for virtual machines within your VMware environment. All of the tools in this package were pooled together for performing advanced tasks to optimize performance, reclaim lost space, and clean up your virtual machine. The goal of this project was to mount the ISO to your VM and run the scripts or tools that are packaged. Of course not all of these tools will run from a VM, but most can. I do not want to take any credit for any of the programs or scripts packaged. I simply took the time to place all of them in one spot. Take a moment to thank the creators of scripts and programs that I have linked within every ReadMe in every folder.

 

CURRENT VERSION = 0.9

 

DISCLAIMER: I do not take any responsibility for your actions. If the tools are not used properly according to the ReadMe and How-To’s provided, you run the risk of destroying data. Before running any of these tools, please have backups of your VMs.

If you have any more ideas of free advanced tools for virtual machine optimization, please send me an email at kendrickcoleman [@] gmail [d0t] com or leave a comment below. I would also like to try and create some sort of auto run menu, but coding isn't my specialty. If you want to help on this project by creating a menu where scripts can be run directly from it, you would be pretty cool in my book.
