VMware Tools End of Life Audit

Find End of Life VMware Tools Installations

VMware Tools is an application designed to help manage virtual machines and is used to pass messages from host to guest, customize the guest OS, run scripts, and sync system time. To help you keep an eye on the end-of-life dates for the various VMware Tools versions we've created a special color-coded report that lists your VMware Tools installations along with the EOL date and how many days are remaining.

Read all about the VMware Tools lifecycle in our VMware Tools blog post.
