The support team have pointed me to here to see if anyone can suggest a

way to do the following change on our whole environment of 11 or so clusters:

We require to change the following:

/etc/vmware/hostd/probe-config.xml
<level>info</level>

To
<level>warning</level>

Can you ssh into your ESXi nodes?

If yes, we could automate the change through the plink.exe command from the PuTTY Suite.

hi,  yes we have ssh access to our hosts only we have in excess of 200 so performing the

change would not be a viable option 1 by 1

You can automate the call to plink.exe.

There are several examples available in this community.
