How to Install VMware Tools on macOS High Sierra

Thank you for the guide. Works well. Used Darwin.iso for vmware tools. I am unable to see my sierra timemachine backup drive or any other drive attached to PC in the VM. Did I miss something? thanks for support.

Hello, How are you?I just used your patch tool.It worked. but i found some strange problem.I wanted to change sierra screen resolution from 1024 * 768 to 1920 *1280.Your patch tool changed resolution from 1024 * 768 to 1716 * 802.I used vmware 10.0 and installed sierra.Is there any way to change to 1920 * 1280?I hope your helps.Thanks.

Yes dear, just reinstall VMware tools on your macOS Sierra Virtual machine and this time, it should be working. To Reinstall VMware tools this time, right click on the macOS Sierra VM tab on VMware and select install VMware tools then go ahead to install it.

Before going to install VM tools on macOS High Sierra, you need to download VMware Workstation on your computer and complete the process of installation. After that, have a clean installation of macOS High Sierra on VMware Workstation, and after that, the installation is completely done therefore you need to install VM tool on macOS High Sierra. I hope that you should focus on the article to not face any kind of issues or problem on it.

Step #7. After that, you clicked on Continue directly the VMware tools will jump the Destination to installation. due to that, you need to install and select Continue installation.

Step #11. While you are successfully installed the VMware tools on macOS High Sierra, you need to do some more important settings on macOS High Sierra on VMware Workstation. Therefore, on the footer menu select System Preferences and navigate to Security & Privacy and go furthermore.

After that, you have done with the all settings and installation of VM tools on macOS High Sierra, therefore, go to VM and select Reinstall VM and restart macOS High Sierra. After that, again run macOS High Sierra go to VM and select Install VMware Tools, furthermore you need to complete the installation process once again because you will not face any kind of problem in future on macOS High Sierra on VMware Workstation. Rather than, check the full-screen mode on VMware Workstation. If you are not able to install VM tools you can watch the below video.

1024 x 768 is the default screen resolution for a virtual machine after installing macOS. Other modes are not available in GUI of macOS. VMware Tools can help you to set higher resolution. After installing VMware Tools, reboot the VM. Open the Launchpad, type terminal in the search field and run the Terminal. Execute the following command in the terminal to set the Full HD resolution:

VMware Tools are used to adjust the screen resolution in this case. Configured resolution is preserved after a VM reboot. Be aware that the maximum displayed resolution in VMware vSphere Web Client and in VMware Host Client is 1176 x 885. Use VMware Workstation to connect to a VM that is running on an ESXi host for working with higher resolution. You can also use VMware vSphere client (a standalone application that is installed on Windows) for this purpose.

This section explains how to correctly create a macOS Mojave bootable ISO image. First, download the macOS Mojave installer from the App Store. In the current example, a machine running macOS Mojave is used for downloading the macOS Mojave installer to avoid using third party downloading tools. Open AppStore, find macOS Mojave, click View and then click Get to download the installer. Notice that you need a full installer whose size is about 6.03 GB. If after downloading the installer, installation starts automatically, cancel it. After successfully downloading you can see the Install macOS file in the Applications directory. Open Finder and click Applications in the left pane of the Finder window to check the installer file.

MacOS can be installed on a VMware VM running on ESXi. This can be done after the preparation of a bootable installation image of the ISO format with hdiutil, applying a free patch on an ESXi server and configuring certain VM settings. It is not recommended to install the macOS unlocker patch on ESXi servers that are used in production environments, in order to minimize the probability of any possible issues or negative impacts on production VMs. In this blog post, we have covered the installation of macOS Sierra due to its high popularity among users; however, you can also use the explained logics for installing macOS High Sierra and macOS Mojave on VMware VMs running on ESXi.

For instance, the best Linux VM experience comes by installing VMware Tools, and by and large Tools are included with every Linux distribution. Currently, open-vm-tools are not readily available on the aarch64 (Arm) platform.

One change from the previous version of the create_macos_vm_install_dmg script is that the resulting installer no longer runs an automated installation. Instead, it will be necessary to follow the prompts to select the language and drive to install the OS onto. For more details, please see below the jump.
