In order to improve performance and add support for automatic startup/shutdown of your virtual machine you’ll need to install the VMware tools package.
While there (of cause) is no officially supported version of VMware Tools for XPenology, @sancome has fortunately been so kind to compile a working Synology package. The package is based on the open-vm-tools code, but works similar to the official toolkit.
VMware Tools is a suite of utilities that enhances the performance of the virtual machines guest operating system and improves management of the virtual machine. Without VMware Tools installed in your guest operating system, guest performance lacks important functionality.
I’m running it without any issues on my XPenology server so if you’re interested you can download it from his Dropbox account here:
