VM unable to unmount VMware tools iso

I faced multiple times the issue that after the installation of VMware tools the iso has not been clean unmounted. This can prevent virtual machine from live migration by VMotion.

Mostly the root cause is related to the fact that the “eject” command is missing in the guest operating system. So to fix you could try to install the eject command and re-run the VMware tools installer. The installer should unmount the iso successfully.
