Change to ICMP ping response behavior in ESXi 5.1


Hi,

I have a problem with ping response on the ESXi 5.1 hosts, in last febrary VMware published a a following KB : VMware KB Article Unavailable

But it's not authorize now

In this KB it was a workaround with command line to fix the pb, I have just keep the link of kb in my favorite not the command and now VMware publish this KB : VMware KB: Change to ICMP ping response behavior in ESXi 5.1

But they don't fix the problem.

If someone have the good command to fix my problem I'm open.

THX in advance

I don t know how to change it, but really interested in knowing in what scenario are you needing it.

I believe (I can fly...) the good command to resolve the pb :

vsish -e set net/tcpip/sysctl set _net_inet_icmp_reply_from_interface=0

If that can you someone...
