Hi @Jayakumar,

 

NGT provides additional Nutanix functionality as described here:

 

https://portal.nutanix.com/#/page/docs/details?targetId=Web-Console-Guide-Prism-v55:man-nutanix-guest-tool-requirements-limitations-r.html

 

https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-Tools/index.html

 

Where as VMware tools can essentially be thought of as the drivers package for VM’s on esxi hosts. As these function independently for different functionality they can both be installed. 

 

Thanks!
