Service Console Commands: VMware vSphere ESXi 5 CLI

vSphere vCenter service console commandWhen upgrading to ESXi 5, it’s important to consider what has changed.

Aside from the added features and all the changes in vSphere vCenter, service console commands have also changed.

In researching these commands for myself I have found a document by VMware which is the most complete service console command line document I have ever read and it also includes transitioning commands from ESXi 4.x to ESXi 5.


The following topics are covered:

  • Transitioning Service Console Commands
  • Using vSphere Client Interfaces
  • Running vCLI or PowerCLI Commands from Remote Hosts
  • vCLI Command Set
  • Running ESXCLI Commands Against ESXi 4.x Hosts
  • PowerCLI Cmdlet Set
  • Using the ESXi Shell
  • ESXi Shell Access
  • ESXi Shell Local Access
  • Enabling the ESXi Shell
  • ESXi Shell Commands
  • ESXCLI Commands
  • Replacing Agents
  • Logging in vSphere 5.0
  • Remote Logging Setup in ESXi
  • Using ESXCLI for Syslog Configuration
  • Viewing Logs in the ESXi Shell
  • Core Dump Setup for ESXi
  • Retrieving Networking Information
  • Adding Third-Party Extensions to Hosts
  • Reference to Replacements for Service Console Commands
