ESXi6.5 Security Hardening Guide

ESXi6.5 Security Hardening Guide

OK, take a seat… this is going to be a long script! I have put together a menu system that will report on all ESXi6.5 Security Hardening Guide settings that are NOT DEFAULT, if you have made additional changes to your configuration you should go through the entire SHG to ensure you are compliant.

This is using my usual variables e.g.

$global:DCChoice – Datacenter
$global:CLUChoice – Cluster


To run this, you need to start function VPF-Choice-65-SecurityGuide

Anyway… here we go
