puppet vmwaretools module 4.6.0

Today, I am releasing a feature update to my VMware Tools Operating System Specific Packages module to the Puppet Forge. In conjunction with Wolf Noble (wolfspyre), we have integrated Wolf’s vmware_puppetfact into puppet-vmwaretools. This will allow any system with the fact “virtual => vmware” to also present the facts vmware and (if applicable) vmware_patchlevel. These facts are meant to allow guest VMs to know what version of ESX the hypervisor is running.

# facter -p vmware vmware_patchlevel
vmware => 5.0
vmware_patchlevel => u2


Let me know if you have any feedback!
