As far as I know in Vsphere 5.5, most of Vmware Administration and Troubleshooting is done on the GUI mode.

I would like to know what commands (ESXCLI,ESXCFG,etc…) will be needed to use that the GUI is not able to do so .

Thank you

what would you like to do?

Using the console or command line, is useful for troubleshooting, but can always be connected via the vSphere Client.

I was just wondering what are the command lines used that do not have GUI equivalent …
in other words, all you can do in a GUI you can do it with command lines, but is all you can do with command line you can do it in GUI?

/sbin/services.sh restart - Network Management Agent Restart

the above cannot be done from the vSphere Client.

Other functions can all be done from the GUI, and have command line, or scripted options using PowerShell, or vCLI.
