This really isn't related to CentOS, but VMware, and definitely
not a CentOS Developer topic.

You should redirect this question to the VMware forums.

CentOS is the equivalent to RHEL and RHEL is fully supported so
CentOS is too. It may have been an installation problem of the
tools in the VM, but again you would get a better answer on
the VMware forums.
