Description
[ warning] [vmusr:vmusr] <error description>
Comments
 
In order to fix this issue I created a tool.conf file in notepad with the following information:

[logging]
vmusr.level = error
    
# Enable tools service logging to vmware.log
vmsvc.level = debug
vmsvc.handler = vmx
  
# Enable new "vmusr" service logging to vmware.log
vmusr.level = error
vmusr.handler = vmx

# Enable "Volume Shadow Copy" service logging to vmware.log
vmvss.level = debug
vmvss.handler = vmx

I then stopped the VMTools service and ended any vmtoolsd.exe processes still running. Restarted VMTools service and the log flooding stopped.
Error description: "Error in the RPC receive loop: RpcIn: Unable to send." - According to EV100392 (VMware Article ID 2036350), as of Nov 12, 2012 this was still an issue with VMware Tools 5.1. See the article for more details.
Error description: "vmware::tools::UnityPBRPCServer::Start: Failed to register with the host!" - A support forum post suggested the re-installation of the VMware Tools on the guest operating system.
Error description: "Failed registration of app type 2 (Signals) from plugin unity." or "Error sending capability unity: Unknown command" - A support forum post suggests that this issue can be solved by deleting/renaming the unity.dll file from the plugins\vmusr subfolder. This would get rid of the "unity" related errors if the Unity plugin is not used.
