VMware: Compliance Checker for vSphere (freeware)

May 30th, 2011 No comments

Compliance Checker for vSphere downloads to a Windows desktop and the intuitive web-based interface requires little or no learning curve. Administrators simply point the product to the ESX and ESXi hosts they want to test compliance against to perform the test immediately. The resultant compliance report provides a detailed rule by rule indication of pass or failure. Where compliance problems are found, users are directed to a detailed knowledge base for an explanation of the rule violated and advice on remediation. Compliance Checker for vSphere should be downloaded by all VMware customers to assess and report on the security and compliance of deployed VMware servers against the VMware vSphere Hardening Guidelines.

VMware: ESX and ESXi 4.1 Comparison

Service Console

Service Console is a standard Linux environment through which a user has privileged access to the VMware ESX kernel. This Linux-based privileged access allows you to manage your environment by installing agents and drivers and executing scripts and other Linux-environment code.

VMware ESXi is designed to make the server a computing appliance. Accordingly, VMware ESXi behaves more like firmware than traditional software. VMware has created APIs through which monitoring and management tasks – traditionally done through Service Console agents – can be performed. VMware has provided remote scripting environments such as vCLI and PowerCLI to allow the remote execution of scripts and commands.

Tech Support Mode (TSM) provides a command-line interface that can be used by the administrator to troubleshoot and correct abnormal conditions on VMware ESXi hosts.
