There is no benefit in loading VMWare tools, the user interface is not a graphical so video drivers are a waste of resources. Panorama only uses web and CLI so there is no value added.

Yes and we are in the process of testing 5.0 to make sure there are no problems before claiming official support.

Is this still not supported? Do we have an FR?

ok then how many vendors actually allow VMTools on their VM ? These tools can allow execution of any command and lead to crash of the machine, thus voiding warranty ...

It is not supported, no benefits of using VMware Tool. It is recommended to install VMware ESX(i) 4.x or 3.5.
