VMWare ESXCFG tool

Hi All,

I'm trying to enable Active Directory Authentication for use when logging into vSphere Client.

I have read around and found out how to do it, but it mentions using the esxcfg tool.

Does anyone know where I can find this?

You can get it from here:

http://www.esxguide.com/esx/content/view/20/25/

but you have to register.

Hello PeterHing,

you need to log onto the esx server itself, esxcfg is a linux command

Thanks Both.

PeteLong - On the esx server, I just have an orange (DOS like) screen, with config options. I don't know how to get to the command line?

The free version of vmware esxi does not support AD integration, the licensed esxi can be authenticated via AD tru vCenter
For esx refer to http://www.vmware.com/pdf/esx3_esxcfg_auth_tn.pdf
The DOS like screen as you mentioned must be esxi

ahhh - I have the licensed ESXi, but because we're currently only using 1 host with local disks, we've not yet brought vCenter.

Does this mean without vCenter, I cannot do what I intend?

Nope with esxi, you need to be authenticated with local user&password
