Thou shalt not install infidel software on the holy domain controller

Unless you really really have to.

In my case I needed to install VMware vsphere 5.5 client onto my lab domain controller. VMware had other ideas and clearly had decided that they needed to save my soul and prevented me from doing so.

Happily, you can override Bishop VMware by using a tool of the devil – a command line switch /VSKIP_OS_CHECKS=”1″ with the VMware client installer. Here’s an example

VMware-viclient-all-5.5.0-1281650.exe /VSKIP_OS_CHECKS="1"

Apostates rejoice !
