Familiarizing Your Way through a VMware CMD

VMware, a virtual machine company, also has a cmd function which one can perform in order to make the other commands a lot doable. Using the VMware utility, one can perform different kinds of options on the virtual machine like being able to register a virtual machine on to the local server, making attempts to monitor the power state of the virtual machine, as well as setting the different configuration variables. Keep in mind though that the previous virtual machine’s VMware control utility has been termed as depreciated.

Should you find yourself using scripts of the VMware control utility, you will need to update your scripts with the newer versions of the VMware cmd utility. Otherwise, it will not be able to work using the VMware GSX Server 2x or even the ESX Server. If you want to know the location of the VMware-cmd, it can be found in the directory of /usr/bin directory (if you are using a Linux operating system) and if you are using a Windows system, it can be found in C:Program FilesVMwareVMware VmPerl Scripting API.

The VMware also has several options for commands which you can use as shortcuts for when you are programming the system. The H function may be used in order to specify the alternate host rather than just the local host. The O function is used when you want to specify an alternative port – and for this command, you can also take note of the default port number of 902.
