ESXi Shell for the host has been enabled warning
Posted by Alan McBurney on September 23, 2011
So I have just spun up a new vSphere 5 install on my home lab.
One of the first things I wanted to do was fix the certificate error by replacing the default certificate with a one from my internal PKI.
The only way I can see to do this is via the shell. Shell access is disabled by default so the first thing to do was enable Shell access.
To disable the warning its simply a matter of going back to the Configuration tab on the host then – Software – Advanced Settings – uservars and changing the UserVars.SupressShellWarning to 1
