New Standard vSwitch Creation in vSphere 6.5 Host Client

As we all knew vSphere Client is no longer available from vSphere 6.5 Onwards. Now we can connect with esxi directly by using the client embedded in esxi host, this client is known as Host Client. To access this use:-
https://esxifqdn/ui
username = root
password = as configured

Networking > Virtual Switches Tab > Add Standard virtual switch > provide the required details > add

Note:- In host client now we have functionality to configure vSwitch name and CDP. Earlier this option was available through CLI. I have checked this feature in vSphere Client and vSphere Web Client of vSphere 6.5 but this is still not available in them, it's only available in Host Client



 I have covered these topics in these previous posts:-

credstore_admin.pl useful info

As we know for executing ESXCLI command on esxi host directly or through vCenter we need vMA to trust ESXi Host certificates. For adding this trust we need to add esxi host certificate at vMA but sometimes when wrong entry is added then we want to delete this entry. In this post i will share how we can use some parameters with this perl script to add, list or remove some enteries:-

Add ESXi Thumbprint
/usr/lib/vmware-vcli/apps/general/credstore_admin.pl remove --server esxifqdn --thumbprint thumbprintvalue

To list credstore enteries:-
/usr/lib/vmware-vcli/apps/general/credstore_admin.pl list

To remove wrong entry:-
/usr/lib/vmware-vcli/apps/general/credstore_admin.pl remove --server esxifqdn --thumbprint

To clear all entries from vMA Credstore:-
/usr/lib/vmware-vcli/apps/general/credstore_admin.pl clear

To get details on how to use this :-
/usr/lib/vmware-vcli/apps/general/credstore_admin.pl help

Table of all vmkernel error codes in ESXi 6.5

vmkerrcode utility displays a table of all VMkernel errors, a brief description, and the corresponding error codes in both decimal and hexadecimal format. This utility was added in ESX 3.0.2
How to use it:-
1. Connect with ESXi Shell (Local or through SSH)
2. Run this command:-
vmkerrcode -l
3. You will get the output like this:-

To use vmkerrcode to list details for an individual error code, run the command:

vmkerrcode error_code

Where error_code is either the hexadecimal (hex) or decimal value for the error code of interest. The utility lists the name, decimal, hexadecimal, text error output, and description for that VMK error code.
