[ warning] [vmusr:vmusr] Error in the RPC receive loop: RpcIn: Unable to send.

Got the following error from one of our Customer. They were running Linux.

Googled around and it turns out – the VMware Tools didn’t install completely. It missed creating tools.conf.
To get around this, create the following file: tools.conf

log = true
# Enable tools service logging to vmware.log
vmsvc.level = debug
vmsvc.handler = vmx
# Enable new “vmusr” service logging to vmware.log
vmusr.level = error
vmusr.handler = vmx
# Enable “Volume Shadow Copy” service logging to vmware.log
vmvss.level = debug
vmvss.handler = vmx

.. and save it to the following location:
