How to Resolve mount: mount point /cdrom does not exist

If you install the CentOS in VM ESX/ESXi server with minimum packages without GUI(Graphical User Interface), you have to know more about the linux command. I believe most of the VMware administrators or Linux administrators facing the same problem when trying to install/upgrade VMware  tools on Linux VM guest.  Anyway, there is the simple steps to resolve this problem.

Problem Encountered:

[root@vmserver ~]# mount /dev/cdrom /cdrom
mount: mount point /cdrom does not exist

Solution:

[root@vmserver ~]# cd /
[root@vmserver /]# mkdir cdrom
[root@vmserver /]# mount /dev/cdrom /cdrom
[root@vmserver /]# cd /cdrom
[root@vmserver cdrom]# ls
manifest.txt  VMwareTools-8.3.2-257589.tar.gz
[root@vmserver cdrom]# cp VMwareTools-8.3.2-257589.tar.gz /tmp
[root@vmserver cdrom]# cd /
