vMA 5.5 resxtop broken

Overview

Whilst carrying out lab exercises for my upcoming VCAP-DCA (VCDA550) I encountered an issue with resxtop not functioning in vMA 5.5. Following some research I found a post on William Lam’s blog detailing the fix. He mentions an update should be arriving soon (but that was 2013, so its obviously not in too much of a hurry!) Attempting to execute resxtop results in nothing being returned after the credentials are entered example error

Solution

Simply execute the below command:

sudo mv /usr/lib/vmware-rcli/lib/ /usr/lib/vmware

After this you should find resxtop functions as expected.
