    Hey all,


    Trying to Enable TLS1.0 Versions on ESXi Host 6.7 which is disable but default now.


    Looked at this link Enable or Disable TLS Versions on ESXi Hosts Which looked easy enough but…


    ssh on to host ./reconfigureEsx: not found


    VMware ESXi 6.7.0 build-10302608 HPE image


    Any help would be great thanks.

    Yeah I was going to say, you'd want to have a really good reason, and for it to be very non-internet facing...

    If your hypervisor host or vcenter is web facing, may God have fucking mercy on your soul.

    Yeah that was me on Reddit, solved. But yes tell me about it they are meant to update the software soon......

    No it is not facing the Internets all on the LAN and once i have completed the migration ill be disable TLS 1.0

    For anyone that is having the same issues with storage craft.


    So I run up a windows server 2016 with vcenter 6.7 on the host.

    First problem I run in to was I had to uninstall MS V C++ 2017 so vcenter could install the 2015 version.

    Second problem was I have to use a full version of vsphere key on the host, I couldn't use free one.
    But after that. -
    Just nav to the C:\Program Files\VMware\vCenter Server\TlsReconfigurator\EsxTlsReconfigurator

    Run an elevated cmd and run "reconfigureEsx ESXiHost -h 198.51.100.2 -u root -p TLS1.0 TLSv1.1 TLSv1.2 "

    Reboot the host

    Then connect Image manager for a HSR.
