Problem to configure OCSinventory Agent on ESXi [closed]

Hi all!

I have a problem when I begin to install OCS inventory Agent on ESXi v.5.1.0 server, I can't install the package ocsinvetory-agent with apt-get, aptitude and yum, the OS didn't accept these command lines. I need to activate any characteristics/services on ESXi server?

Hi @micochoft

not sure that the OCS Inventory agent can install on an ESXi hypervisor (security limitation)...

Moreover, a OCS plugin was created specifically to gather informations of this type of machines, see :


However, this plugin only works with vcenter (standalone version excluded)

On ESXi servers you can't install anything. To inventory esxi server install unix agent on a server and use this plugin https://github.com/PluginsOCSInventory-NG/vmware-vcenter/releases/download/1.0/vmware.zip
