How to check VIB installed on ESXi through Command Line

Perhaps you intended to know how to check the VIB file with a Command-Line Interface (CLI) in VMware ESXi. If that’s the case, here’s how you can do it:

Step 1: Connect to your VMware ESXi host using SSH.

Step 2: Use the “esxcli software vib” command. For example, type the following command to list all the installed VIBs:

esxcli software vib list

Step 3: To verify if a specific VIB package is installed, use the following command:

esxcli software vib list | grep <vib-name>

Note: Replace `<vib-name>` with the name of the VIB package you want to check.

For example

  •  Log in to ESXi Shell or SSH as root

Once you log in to the ESXi host with the help of the given command

esxcli software vib list

You can also grep command to find the particular vib of the ESXi component.

esxcli software vib list | grep
