VMware Horizon Clients for Windows, Mac, iOS, Linux, Chrome and Android allow you to connect to your VMware Horizon virtual desktop from your device of choice giving you on-the-go access from any location. Click here for a list of certified thin clients, zero clients, and other partner solutions for VMware Horizon. In early 2016, VMware began including the embedded HTML5 host client for managing ESXi in version 6.0 U2 from your web browser. Meant to connect to and manage single ESXi clients, it’s a great solution for users getting started with a dedicated Mac (like a quad-core mini or a Mac Pro) running VMware at MacStadium. VMware View Client 4.6 for Mac can be downloaded from our website for free. The actual developer of this Mac application is VMware, Inc. Our built-in antivirus scanned this Mac download and rated it as virus free. The unique ID for this program's bundle is com.vmware.view. The most popular versions of the application are 4.6 and 4.5. VMware is the global leader in virtualization software, providing desktop and server virtualization products for virtual infrastructure solutions.
In one of my ESXi host we have found the alert mentioning the NFS IP Conflict and it points the specific MAC address as the owner . I was looking to find the HostIP which is causing the conflict and found some various options to find the results from both the ESXi VM level and hope it will be useful to share the information.
Method 1 – Simple commands
First by using the below command and it will search all the VMFS datastores and give the result with the appropriate VMX which is very useful to find the MAC of any VM vnic.( Below command is from the Reference Link )
find /vmfs/volumes grep .vmx$ while read i; do grep -i “00:50:**:**:**:**” “$i” && echo “$i”; done
If it couldn’t get the result then it will give the empty message.
Other Options :
Display the list of known network neighbors in the ARP and ND cache for all VMkernel network interfaces using one of the command
Next if we want to list the Mac of the VMKNIC then we can use the below command
esxcli network ip neighbor list
By using the VMware debug mode we can try the below command
To Determine the MAC address of an ESX Hosts administration interface.
# ifconfig grep -i hw
The output appears similar to:
Watch the social dilemma - (2020) full movies & streaming online putlocker. vswif0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:50:56:41:5A:59
The MAC address is found in the first line after HWaddr. In this example, the MAC address is 00:50:56:41:5a:59.
Note: The ESX host uses self-generated addresses starting with 00:50:56 (as opposed to the burned-in address of the interface itself).
Alternatively, review the outputted information and MAC addresses from the command esxcfg-nics -l.
Method -2 – DHCP Server
Another way to find the Mac address is from the DHCP Server , Go to the Scope – Address Lease , It will list all the IPs with the Mac address but it will help only for the DHCP IPs and not for the static address .
Method-3 – ARP
Next step is to try the ARP command which will give the list of recently resolved IP addresses to MAC address mapping from the ARP cache.
To populate the ARP table, ping a broadcast IP address to get a reply back from all hosts listening on the same subnet.
For example :ping 10.10.10.255
To list the ARP table, run the command:
Have a try on both from the ESX and the Vcenter so that we can get more chances to find the IP.
Method 4 – find the manufacturer.
If you suspect the MAC is from any hardware like printer then we can try the below link to find the manufacturer.
Method – 5 How to find the MAC of the ESXi servers using the PowerCLI.
Pls see the below reference link for the info of the script and I just copied the main content of the script here.
The Get-VmMacAddress function use the function to find the MAC of the VM using the powerCLI.

Method -6 – Free Tools
Download Vmware Host Client
Lot of free tools are available in the internet like IP Scanner but the tool have to scan the entire network .
To install wine on Linux:
• Follow the instructions found here
To Install wine on Mac:
• First install Homebrew (run this in Terminal):• Then run this command to finish the setup:
• Once Homebrew is installed now wine can be installed:**Note: If any errors occur, feel free to post comments and also look at this webpage for more help.
• Go to the ip address of the ESXi host. (EX: http://192.168.1.202/)
**Note: Ignore any security warnings that your browser might bring up.
• Download the vSphere client by clicking on the link. A .EXE file should start downloading.
• Run the installer (replace the directory path with the path to your .exe file):• Follow all the instructions in the installer.
• If you get a error because the .NET framework needs to be installed I will post about how to fix that later.
• MOST of the time, a error will appear saying the the hcmon driver failed to install. DO NOT CLICK CANCEL.
• Navigate to the /.wine directory, and temporarily move it to your desktop. (Finder - Go - Go to folder - ~/.wine)
• Now you can click cancel, the installer will say it failed to install, this is fine, close the installer.
• Now you can move your .wine folder back to its original place (/Users/[name]/.wine)
• The vSphere client should now be installed.
• In Terminal navigate to the folder where the client exe is located (not the installer):• Then run the Client with this command: • If a screen opens up asking for a username and password then everything is working.
• In the Host Box, type the Host's IP address (the one that we used to download the installer).
• Then put in your username and password (default username is 'root').

• If you are brought to a screen that asks about credentials and certificates, click Ignore.
• If all works, then the client should connect!
