VMware Tools are binaries that are guest OS dependent and need to be installed on the VM after the guest OS has been installed. The tools are required to see the IP addresses assigned for the network interfaces of the VM (among other things).
Following are the steps:
- Power on the VM.
- Once the guest OS has booted up, go to the VM > Guest > Install/Upgrade VMware Tools menu.
- This will put the VMware Tools directory under /media directory in Ubuntu.
- cd /media/VMware Tools
- cp /media/VMware Tools/VMware*tar.gz /tmp
- cd /tmp
- tar xvzf VMware*.tar.gz
- cd vmware-tools-distrib/
- sudo ./vmware-install.pl
- When the installation scripts promps for answers, just hit Enter since defaults are OK.
The above is based on: http://www.ubuntugeek.com/how-to-install-vmware-tools-in-ubuntu-10-04-lucid-lynx.html

Over and above what is found in the documentation Building PRO Pack for SC2012, we also need to set the following property of the PRO.Base class during the PRO target instance creation:
objInst.AddProperty("$MPElement[Name='PRO!Microsoft.SystemCenter.VirtualMachineManager.PRO.Base']/Name$", <target hostname>)
Only then will the PRO tips targeted to instances of the PRO target object be fetched into SCVMM 2012.
Also one important change in SC2012 is the MP Authoring toolkit has been replaced by Visual Studio 2010 Authoring Extensions for System Center 2012 – Operations Manager.
