VI Toolkit


Welcome at our web site which contains information for developers and administrators about extending and managing your VMware virtual environments.
This includes everything from automation on virtual machines in VMware player up to managing your Virtual Infrastructure using the available Software Development Kits from VMware.

The focus is on trying to provide examples about the source code. (Yes this site is all about the code)
Over time this will hopefully include a repository of scripts and helpful snippets of code for you all.

On the scripts part, the site is mostly still a collection of links to what you can find on the net. But there's more...

Since January 3rd 2009, we now have a complete command reference to Vimsh, the undocumented metashell for VMware ESX.

Starting February 2011, the @vitoolkit twitter account that accompanies this site is also active. It will retweet/tweet about VMware specific code, scripts or info related to the VMware api's. It will NOT be used for anything else, there's not going to be any social or commercial tweets. Early 2012 the site and twitter account had been put on hold due to some family health issues, which made me focus on that. Not sure if the twitter account will be resurrected, but I do expect that the site will be active again in 2013. Guess we'll see.

Statistics, search and navigation

There are currently 490 pages stored in our wiki database. Almost all of the pages are categorized, so using the categories landing page to navigate is a good way to quickly see what is currently available to you.

Search tip: For searching your search term MUST be at least 4 characters long so searching for "VT" or "ESX" will return nothing while there's still content describing this. Instead try another longer related search term like "BIOS" or "backup" for what you are trying to find.

As extra help, the categories are listed below as well.
