I want to change the default comunication ports 80 and 443 on my Esxi host.
I have tried:
vifs --server <hostname> --username <username> --get
But the host generates a 404 file proxy.xml not found error.
I'm running Version ESXi-5.1.0-799733-standard.
What am I missing? Has this functionality changed?
If you have access to the ESXi Shell using SSH or the direct console, you may edit the proxy.xml directly using vi editor to change the HTTP and HTTPS ports on the ESXi host. The proxy.xml file is located in /etc/vmware/hostd/ directory on the ESXi host.
For more information refer to VMware KB VMware KB: Changing the port used by the vSphere Client to connect directly to the ESX/ESXi host
About VMware Virtualization on NetApp
Thanks for your reply, I have looked at the VMware KB: Changing the port used by the vSphere Client to connect directly to the ESX/ESXi host
Even if i modify vifs connection as you stated I get the same error:
C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware vSphere CLI\bin>vifs.pl --server ************* --username ***** --password ********** --get /etc/vmware/hostd/proxy.xml c:\temp\proxy.xml
GET https://**************/folder/etc/vmware/hostd/proxy.xml unsuccessful : 404
Error: File can not be downloaded to c:\temp\proxy.xml.
