openSUSE-RU-2020:0397-1: moderate: Recommended update for open-vm-tools
openSUSE Recommended Update: Recommended update for open-vm-tools

Announcement ID: openSUSE-RU-2020:0397-1
Rating: moderate
References: #1160408 #1162119 #1162435 #1165955
Affected Products:
openSUSE Leap 15.1

An update that has four recommended fixes can now be


This update for open-vm-tools fixes the following issues:

- Update to 11.0.5 (build 15389592) (bsc#1165955) DNS server is reported
incorrectly in GuestInfo as '', when the OS uses
systemd-resolved. This issue is fixed in this release. Added Application
Discover (appInfo) plugin. The plugin collects the information about
running applications inside the guest and publishes the information to a
guest variable.

- GCC-10 compiler failure (bsc#1160408) The update will solve a GNU
compiler Collection GCC10 failure with -fno-common.

- Rectify a log spew in vmsvc logging (bsc#1162435, bsc#1162119) When a
LSI Logic Parallel SCSI controller sits in PCI bus 0 (SCSI controller
0), the Linux disk device enumeration does not provide a "label" file
with the controller name. This results in messages like
"GuestInfoGetDiskDevice: Missing disk device name; VMDK mapping
unavailable for "/var/log", fsName: "/dev/sda2" repeatedly appearing in
the vmsvc logging. The update converts what previously was a warning
message to a debug message and thus avoids the log spew.

This update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-15-SP1:Update update project.
