I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

there are no tools for troubleshoot

although. you can take free help on expert exchange

and paid one is vmware support subscription.

rest inbuilt tools or command we can share based on your issue.

as you are migrating from MS to VMware you can use vsphere converter.

It depends on what issues you are facing with your VMWare Vsphere, VMWare provide articles for most of the common issues. For some issues you have to collect the logs to either analyse yourself or send it to VMWare support. Log file location :- https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/1021806?language=en_US

 The most useful is the command line utility (ESXCLI & POWERCLI). You can use the bash shell to connect locally or use tools like PUTTY to connect through SSH port  remotely to execute the commands (either to view or to configure). Some helpful commands below (http://www.tomsitpro.com/articles/vmware-esx-esxi-troubleshooting,2-810.html)

Some thirdparty common management tools in the below link which may help (http://www.kendrickcoleman.com/index.php/Tech-Blog/a-list-of-free-vmware-vsphere-tools.html).
