ESXi Embedded Host Client ควบคุมระบบทั้งวงแผ่นเว็บ
Please note that the Host Client cannot be used to manage vCenter.
We welcome any feedback and bug reports at this early stage. However, rather than reporting on missing features, we are very much interested in your thoughts on the layout, user experience, and performance of the host client. Download the VIB here.
ESXi 6.0 Update 1 or lower hosts which are assigned a VMware vSphere Hypervisor license, all modification operations will fail silently. This issue has been resolved in ESXi 6.0 U2 and 5.5 Patch 8.
ESXi 6.0 host before Update 2 which have a sub-domain name with large, shared cookies a web console session may fail to initialize. A workaround is to clear cookies or run the host client in an incognito-type window, or use VMware Remote Console.
For ESXi 5.5 hosts, in-browser consoles are not supported. Please use VMRC to access guest VM consoles.
For ESXi 5.5 hosts before Update 2, you must ensure to append a trailing / (forward slash) to the URL after /ui. The URL must be https://<esxhost>/ui/
For some Windows guests, sending Ctrl-Alt-Del does not work.
The Embedded Host Client is currently undergoing development. We are working hard to bring the functionality level to that of the vSphere Client, but we're not there yet. Here's what we know is missing:
Resource pool management
Comprehensive performance chart UI with access to all performance counters
Exporting performance counter data to Excel/CSV
Multi-NIC vMotion configuration
Deploying VMs from a URL
Exporting VMs to an OVA
The easiest way to install a VIB is to download it directly on the ESXi host. Alternatively, you can download it to your local machine and use scp to push it to your ESXi Host.
All installation techniques require you to enable SSH on your ESXi host, using DCUI or the vSphere web client.
If your ESXi host has internet access, you can install directly from URL.
ssh root@<esx ip or hostname> esxcli software vib install -v <URL>
where <URL> is the URL to the VIB from the VMware.com Flings website or somewhere you have locally hosted it.
If the VIB installation completes successfully, you should now be able to navigate a web browser to https://<esx ip or hostname>/ui and the login page should be displayed.
If you have downloaded the VIB to your local machine, you will need to push it to ESXi using scp.
scp /path/to/downloaded/vib/esxui.vib root@<esx ip or hostname>:/tmp
ssh root@<esx ip or hostname> esxcli software vib install -v /tmp/esxui.vib
ssh root@<esx ip or hostname> esxcli software vib update -v <path to VIB or URL>
You may need to clear the cache in your browser to see the updated version.
To remove the ESXi embedded host client from your ESXi host, you can use esxcli.
ssh root@<esx ip or hostname> esxcli software vib remove -n esx-ui
