VMware counters are greyed out on Agent Linux running on Redhat 7 and more recent Linux VMs
Vmtools are installed, but they are open-vm tools and are installed on a different path than previous VMWare libraries.
Example of messages in sldrmd.log:
coll - Trying to detect if this is a Virtual Machine (VMGuestLib enabled)...: coll - Type of machine detected : Physical (if its not the case, please install/update the VMTools)
coll - OS: Linux 3.10.0-693.2.2.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Sep 12 22:26:13 UTC 2017 (machine: x86_64)
Agent for Linux was looking for the library /usr/lib/vmware-tools/lib64/libvmGuestLib.so
which does not exist on recent version of the Openvm tools.
