To Find iDRAC IP Address on ESX Host


Scenario : To identify iDRAC IP address of ESXi host through cli. This would be useful when you forget the IP Address of idrac.

 

Solution:

There is no VMware command to find the IP address of iDRAC. But we can get the information from local CIM providers through ESXi shell query.

Syntax:

# enum_instances OMC_IPMIIPProtocolEndpoint root/cimv2 | grep IPv4Address

IPv4Address = 192.168.0.120
