If you are going to use Linux OS for your SAP installation on VMware platform , you should first start with installing “VMware Tools” on the system.
You can get the details from below offical site link
You can install it on either “VMware Client” or from “Terminal”
First of all we have to mount VMware tools as ISO then ,
If you want to use VMware Client option ;
Open Console –> VM –> “Install\Upgrade VMware Tools”
If you want to do it on terminal side you can use the below commands ;
mount dev/sr0 /mnt/cdrom
cp /mnt/cdrom/VMwareTools-version.tar.gz /tmp/
tar -zxvf VMwareTools-version.tar.gz
cd vmware-tools-distrib ./vmware-install.pl
