How does cPanel detect a VPS environment?

    Hi Guys

    I've installed cPanel on a VM running Centos 5.x, on an ESXi 4.1 host, everything is running smoothly but I notice I'm running the accelerated version rather than the VPS version.

    Does the cP installer rely on the presence of vmware tools in order to detect a virtual environment? Is there any way I can rectify this without a complete reinstall?

    I have another cPanel instance on another ESXi host, running a Centos guest with vmware tools on it, and this is working as planned (Running VPS Optimised!)

    Any ideas? :)
