That should be --username. For the error LIBEAY32.dll do a search in the ESXi forum. It's a conflict with any version of the dll on your system.
Thanks Dave, all fixed now. I renamed the libeay32.dll in c:\windows\system32 to libeay32.dll.old and then copied the one in the c:\program files\vmware\vmware remote cli\perl\bin into that folder.
Hey thanks, that gave me an idea to try out. I was having a
problem registering the LIBEAY32.dll. Your copy and paste idea worked for me…
