You install I/O filters in an ESXi host cluster by running installers provided by vendors.
Before you begin
Required privileges: Host.Config.Patch.
Verify that the I/O filter solution integrates with vSphere ESX Agent Manager and is certified by VMware.
Verify that your cluster includes ESXi 6.0 Update 1 hosts.
Enable DRS on the cluster.
- Run the installer that the vendor provided.
The installer installs the appropriate I/O filter extension on vCenter Server and deploys the filter components on all hosts within a cluster. You cannot install the filter on selected hosts.
- Verify that the I/O filter components are properly installed on your ESXi hosts:
esxcli --server=server_name software vib list
The filter appears on the list of VIB packages.
