VM Renamed using PowerCLI Reverts to Original Name After vCenter Restart

VM Renamed using PowerCLI Reverts to Original…

Quick Post. I have a customer who provisions a lot of VMs a head of time with generic names. Once the VM is put in use, the name is changed via PowerCLI to reflect what the VM is assigned to. We have been having some problems with our vCenter 6.0u1 which meant we had to restart inventory service (which restarted vCenter) a few times. Each time this occurred, the customer’s VMs would get revert to the original name.

Using the vSphere API to remotely collect ESXi…

Using the same technique as I have described here, you can now also use the vSphere API to connect to vCenter Server to remotely collect esxcfg-info from ESXi hosts without having to SSH’ing to each and every single host. Historically, the esxcfg-* commands were only available in the classic ESX Service Console (COS) and the ESXi Shell. As part of the ESXi transition, VMware has converted all the commands over to the vSphere API which means that you no longer needed to run those local CLIs commands to manage or configure your ESXi hosts like you used to with classic ESX.
