Esxcli - Display Installed VIBs

From Thomas-Krenn-Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

You can display the installed vSphere Installation Bundles (VIBs) quickly and easily with the Esxcli command of the VMware vSphere CLI 5.0.

For a single ESXi server, use the following command:

esxcli -s SERVER-IP -u USERNAME software vib list

The following example illustrates such a case:

user@ubuntu-11-10:~$ esxcli -s 10.1.102.154 -u root software vib list
Enter password:
