I am using ArchLinux (using systemd) as guest system. Everytime I poweroff or reboot the system it holds for a minute coming to the sequence "Stopped target Remote File Systems."

Looking to journalctl give following hint:
"
Nov 15 11:45:01 warch systemd[1]: Stopped target Remote File Systems.
Nov 15 11:46:06 warch systemd[1]: vmtoolsd.service stopping timed out. Killing.
Nov 15 11:46:06 warch systemd[1]: vmtoolsd.service: main process exited,code=killed, status=9/KILL
Nov 15 11:46:06 warch systemd[1]: Stopped Open Virtual Machine Tools (VMwareTools).
Nov 15 11:46:06 warch systemd[1]: Unit vmtoolsd.service entered failed state
"
So it looks like the service could not be closed as it should.
If you need any further logs or any checks I can offer them to you. Just tell me what you need. I did not find anything else by myself.

I am running Linux kernel 3.6.6 with open-vm-tools 9.2.0.-2 and open-vm-tools-modules 9.2.2-3.

    • status: open --> closed-invalid
     
  • Open VM Tools does not provide systemd (or upstart) integration, it was done by Archlinux package owner and should be reported there.

    Thanks!
