This article will explain how to go about installing VMWare Tools for CentOS/Red hat v6 & above. The install can be done via SSH Putty session but the recommended method is doing it via VMware console session and reason being that as it updates drivers that include Network there is a chance you might get disconnected during the process.

I wanted to share my experience building a ESXi HOME LAB with VPN access that can be used for development and testing purposes and also making sure its the most energy efficient setup and light on your pocket coupled with good performance and negligible noise.
This article is aimed at Home users and Small & Medium business users who don't have huge needs to running resource hungry applications/databases instead just running some WEB applications, NAS, Windows AD or RedHat Infra and media sharing across the network for multiple users.

Its possible to change the interface name in Linux and reload without a reboot. It usually happens in Virtual environment where you add / remove interfaces frequently. You need to take note of the interfaces before you do any changes. Make sure that there are no active connections going to the NIC as you are going to restart the network service for the chagesz to take effect. Again you would not need a reboot.
