I've been tasked with setting up some VMs. I've been given some admin details but no further guidance. The server is a fresh install.
My problem is that I'm on Linux/OSX and don't want to run Windows aside from setting up after which I hope to be able to manage things through the web client.
I think there is an ESXi installation. This would be Version 6. How do I set up the web client?
I've installed vSphere Client on a local Windows VM.. not sure what to do with it though.
The documentation is pretty awful and there hasn't been much useful info on the net. I'm really stuck as I didn't set these up and haven't used servers like this before, so I have no context or understanding of the VMWare ecosystem beyond using a virtual machine locally! (even then I've preferred Virtualbox)
Any advice would be amazing
