vimsh hostsvc/vmotion/vnic_set

Usage: vnic_set vnic

Select a VirtualNic to be used as the VMotion NIC.

example

Taken from http://www.yellow-bricks.com/2008/12/08/enable-vmotion-from-the-command-line/

As of ESX 3.5 the way to enable VMotion via the command-line changed.

So for anyone looking for this particular command:

/usr/bin/vmware-vim-cmd "hostsvc/vmotion/vnic_set vmk0"

In this example “vmk0″ is the first vmkernel nic. This is one of the things that changed, so no portgroup id’s anymore.

thanks Duncan!
