replacement for vmware-rpctool on mac os

I'm trying to use a teamcity plugin which integrates with vmware in order to launch VMs and use them as build agents.

The agent configuration process is using a utility called vmware-rpctool which does not seem to exist on the VM I'm using, although vmware-tools is installed on the VM.

Is this utility something that used to appear in previous versions of vmware-tools and changed somewhere along the way?

I'm running a vm of macos 10.12, with vmware tools 10.1.5 installed on it.

Here is a link to the code, with the line looking for the utility highlighted - https://github.com/JetBrains/teamcity-vmware-plugin/blob/ca02f89f42330be6826a4132d7ef7c6ffdd66d1c/cl...

Hi Znavot,

You can use vmware-tools-daemon to get the information from vmware, but it is a little bit different with rpctool

you can run the command as follow:

/Library/Application\ Support/VMware\ Tools/vmware-tools-daemon --cmd="info-get your-info-key"

please note that this command needs root privilege.
