ESXi Security Service Configurator (PowerCLI)

4 08 2012

Personally, I get annoyed when I have to dig through the vSphere Client GUI to turn on or off certain ESXi services on a regular basis. Since admins are generally on top of it in terms of following good security standards, I see Lockdown Mode on and SSH off by default on their ESXi hosts in many environments. When troubleshooting issues or configuring certain VMware-integrated products (such as HyTrust Appliance), it is sometimes necessary to temporarily undo this setup (enable SSH and disable Lockdown Mode).

The tool linked below can be used to turn on or off SSH and/or Lockdown Mode for a single host or all hosts in the environment. As usual, feel free to use all, some, or none of the code. I’m hoping to add additional services to it in the future, but these two are consistently needing to be toggled…
