VMWare: Check VMware ESX or ESXi Version and Build Number

Quick notes

If you need to check your VMware ESX or ESXi version and build number but are having issues using the vSphere Client (GUI) you can use command line via SSH session.

Once logged in type:

vmware –v

[root@esxi01:~]
[root@esxi01:~] vmware -v
VMware ESXi 6.5.0 build-5310538
[root@esxi01:~]
