Normally you would expect it :

$ sudo /etc/init.d/vmware-tools start
$ sudo /etc/init.d/vmware-tools stop
$ sudo /etc/init.d/vmware-tools restart

But newer Linux builds have it installed elsewhere:

VMware Tools init script is missing from the /etc/init.d directory on Linux virtual machines (2015685)

  • /etc/vmware-tools/services.sh start
  • /etc/vmware-tools/services.sh stop
  • /etc/vmware-tools/services.sh restart

So you have to run it kinda like you would services.sh restart on an esxi host
