Environment

NetIQ UNIX Agent 7.1
VMware ESXi version 3.5
VMware ESXi version 4.0

Situation

Will the NetIQ UNIX Agent run on VMWare ESXi?

Resolution

ESXi does not provide the standard Linux/UNIX commands NetIQ utilizes to monitor system resources, in addition to this ESXi does not contain a system shell (bash,sh,etc).

Given the facts above, the NetIQ UNIX Agent will not run on ESXi at this time.
