I'm trying to add vmware esxi 5.5 on my zenoss core and get complete information out of it. As I noticed better way of doing this is by installing esxtop and it's prerequisites on zenoss then adding it on newly created device class(Esxtop). I followed the instructions which I found on the web, but I struggled in the step which we do in order to test esxtop. I mean the following step which we use in order to test esxtop correct installation:

resxtop --server myESXServer --user userOnRemoteEsxServerAllowedToUseEsxTop -b -n 1 -a

I receive following output:
/usr/lib/vmware-vcli/lib/ /usr/lib/vmware-vcli/bin/resxtop: /lib/ bad ELF interpreter: No such file or directory
/usr/lib/vmware-vcli/lib/ line 321: /usr/lib/vmware-vcli/bin/resxtop: Success

I've already installed Vmware Esxi monitor zenpack. but I don't know if any other zenpack required to install to make this operation work correctly.
Please give me a complete guide.

Has the device been modeled

Did you specify valid credentials for the host on the device's configuration properties under zVSphereUsername and zVSpherePassword
