How to Fix Virtual IPs in ESX

So in this post I detailed how Virtual IPs on ESX5 with Server 2008 R2 were broken.  There’s a fix, but is isn’t pleasant if you have a lot of servers.  Quite simply you have to uninstall the VM tools, enable Virtual IPs, and then reinstall the tools.  The unfortunate part is that you will have to reconfigure all the network settings assuming you have them hard coded so this can only be done from the console, and only by hand.  VMWare has said that any fix will likely require the reinstall of tools anyway which is a bad thing when you are dealing with dozens of servers.  So if you were looking for something to give to your FNG, this is it :).
