I face following error while using tar for extracting VMware tools, there were a lot of solution but none of them worked.

Following were the solutions:

1. Check the permission of file.

2. don’t use -v parameter but even then I was facing the same error.

Solution:

tar -zxf /tmp/filename.tar.gz -C /destination-path

Using -C parameter solved the issue.
