Web Interface with ESX with no vCentre

 If you have an ESX instance that is not connected to VSphere then you do not get a web interface and using the client is a pain, you can add the UI to the ESX server using these commands below:

  1. Download the VIB file
  2. SSH into your ESXi host
  3. Copy the VIB file to /tmp/ (I used WInSCP)

Then run the command, I  have copied it to the /tmp folder but you may have used a different folder:

esxcli software vib install -v /tmp/esxui_signed.vib

That will then install the client and then you can visit the website using the URL:


That should look like this, and you login with the root password you setup during install.....

Then when you login it will look like this:
