Experts,

    What is the command to use a VMware Server Console vm on a ESX platform? I think it is some kind of command run from the command prompt that allows ESX to see VMware servers?

Thanks

Are you talking about finding information about VM machines in ESX Server, then it is

esxcfg-info

Here is list of all commands used in ESX Server

Thanks for the information. Do you know the exact command to convert a VMServer that has Linux and Oracle 11g installed into a virtual machine that ESX can recognize? Could you give me an example of the command I would use? I am in a bit of a time crunch, our current configuration died and I need to get this copy of VMware into our ESX server asap!

Thanks,
MissyMadi

Then it's a different situation, most people use VM Converter rather than command line (perhaps there may be, but I have only tried using VM Converter)
