VMware ESXi Script Requirements

Our VMware ESXi scripts support ESXi version 6.5 and earlier.

The Scripts can run from an Agent installed on a guest Operating System or from another server pointing back at the VMware device.

Depending on the monitored indicators, the Virtualization script language is either VBScript or PowerShell.

For both languages WinRM (Windows Remote Management) must be installed and the script have access to the VMware CIM / SMASH API.

This uses the WSMAN library (not supported on XP, 2003 or earlier Operating systems)

Additionally for PowerShell scripts Microsoft .Net 3.5 (or higher), PowerCLI and PowerShell 2.0 (or later) must be installed on the device the scripts will be executed from.

PowerCLI is supported up to version 6.0.

Later versions of PowerCLI (from 6.3) are currently unsupported and may results in unexpected results when running Checks.
