Hello List,

At this link, https://cloud.centos.org/altarch/7/images/ I'm trying to 
use the latest image CentOS-7-x86_64-GenericCloud.qcow2c

I cannot log in to the VM because cloud-init did not run.  vSphere says 
open-vm-tools is not running.

After having broken into the VM, I see open-vm-tools is installed but 
not enabled.  Does anyone know why/why not?  I could be mistaken, but 
I'm thinking maybe that's why cloud-init doesn't run.
