Resolution Paths are collections of modular steps that can be used to solve tech support issues.
Being modular, they can be re-used in other resolution paths. A good example is using the ping command to test network connectivity. This step is used in all kinds of troubleshooting procedures. Put a number of these steps together, and you have a method.
Down the very first left hand column of each resolution path are common issues that customers encounter. To the right of each these are VMware's recommended steps to resolving these issues. Each and every one is hyper-linked directly to the VMware Knowledge base article on that topic.
