I will tell about install VMware Tools for RHEL 6. This is simple way.
Step 1: Right-click the RHEL 6 virtual machine in vSphere Client, then select Guest > Install/Upgrade VMware Tools.
Step 2: Log in to the virtual machine and mount the CD-ROM to access the VMware Tools installation package.
Step 3: Exacute commands
mkdir /mnt/cdrom mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom mkdir /tmp/vmtools cd /tmp/vmtools
Step 4: Run the tar xf command to extract the VMware Tools package tar file.
tar xf /mnt/cdrom/VMwareTools-*.tar.gz
Step 5: Make vmware-tools-distrib your working directory, and run the vmware-install.pl script.
cd vmware-tools-distrib ./vmware-install.pl Press Enter to finish the installation.
Step 6 : Remove the vmtools temporary (temp) file that is created as an artifact of the installation process.
rm -rf /tmp/vmtools
Step 7 : Shut down virtual machine.
