First, I'm not going to make that code available (should I have some) in this forum.
This borders on, or even crosses, what is legal imho.

In any case you will sure need SSH access to the ESXi node for such a script.

And then some Google fu to find the procedure, should there be one.

I'm assuming you are talking about the VCSA eval license?

Then the answer is no.

Talk to your TSA.

If you need a longer evaluation period, you will need a license - if you have a sales contact at VMware you can ask them for time-limited keys.
