vSphere CLI (vCLI)

vSphere Command-Line Interface (vCLI) is a management tool for VMware users managing VMware ESX/ESXi infrastructures.

The vSphere CLI gives administrators more freedom to configure ESXi features than they have using vSphere tools. The vSphere CLI was formerly called the Remote CLI; it is not synonymous with vSphere PowerCLI.
