Place an ESX Host into maintenance mode using the command line13. May 201313. May 2013Gert Kjerslev
Okay this is not new and you can find it all over the net, but for my own reference (and yours ) To enter maintenance mode use: vmware-vim-cmd /hostsvc/maintenance_mode_enter To exit maintenance mode use: vmware-vim-cmd /hostsvc/maintenance_mode_exit To check if a host is already in maintenance mode: vmware-vim-cmd hostsvc/hostsummary|grep -i maintenance It will return : inMaintenanceMode = false
