vEMan – [v]Mware [E]SX [Man]ager is a tool which helps you managing ESX servers natively from within your Linux desktop without the need to use Windows vSphere® anymore!
It is based on the VMware CLI/SDK and/or other free great user-scripts but using a GUI on top.
vEMan is (maybe) not needed if you use vCenter 5.x: VMware KB (opens in external window) The main aspect here is that vSphere >= v5 has a “web client”.
BUT keep in mind that there are caveats: Not all features are available in the web client AND it can connect to vCenters only (see: http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1006095)
- ESX(i) v3.x or 4.x?
- v5.x – but no vCenter?
- you want a native Linux vSphere client?
Then try vEMan (Download your free copy of freedom)!
