vmware cmd to list VM-NAME, VM-IP and VLANID

Hello,
esxcfg-nics -l -> list the Phy NICS
vmware-cmd -l -> lists the VMS

Is there way to find out (vmware commands)
VM-Name
IP assigned to that VM
VLANID assigned to that VM

Thanks

Basheer,
Is Glance Plus or Performance Agent installed in your VMWare hosts? If yes, then use BYLS class of metrics to get all the data you are looking for.

Hi,
try with the powershell and powercli the following, when connected to your vcenter server:

$vms=@(Get-VM)

foreach ($vm IN $vms) {echo $vm; get-vmguest -vm $vm}

Re: vmware cmd to list VM-NAME, VM-IP and VLANID

IP addresses are usually defined within the operating system. A single VM can have multiple virtual NICs with multiple IP addresses on each vNIC.


VLAN IDs are usually not assigned to an individual VM. You create a virtual switch and then a portgroup on that switch. It is the portgroup that gets assigned a VLAN ID.
Next you attach a VM's vNIC to that portgroup.
That is called VST - Virtual Switch Tagging.

Another way is to assign the VLAN ID 4095 to a port group. Then the NIC driver of the operating system must be VLAN-capable, but the control is through the guest's operating system, not via ESX.
That is called VGT - Virtual Guest Tagging.

Hi Basheer,

yes you get the details from the service console cli itself by running below commands

#vmware-vim-cmd vmsvc/getallvms
(the aboe commnd gives the information on all the vm's registered and running the first row displays the vmid make a note of it and run the next command)

#vmware-vim-cmd vmsvc/get.config vmid

this should answer your query
