Does the Altiris Agent for Linux support VMWare ESXi?
Answer VMWare consideres ESXi more like a computing appliance or firmware, instead of a standard operating system (see http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1006543). Due to these limitations, third party software cannot be installed on the host ESXi installation, which includes the Altiris Agent or Inventory Agent. Limited support for SNMP is available when ESXi is licensed with VI. See http://www.vmware.com/products/esxi/ for more information.
