possibly use a perl script as it will work on both OSes (i think.. can anyone veryify that perl works on ESX?)
is that what youre asking??
No. He's using a hosted version of VMware (workstation, server, or GSX) on a Windows platform and he wants to disable the TCP/IP protocol binding for the bridged or virtual adapters.
This is a one time configuration setting that usually happens when you build a host so why you need to automate this leaves me guessing, unless you have 100+ hosts to build and you're trying to save 3 mouse clicks.
At any rate, you will need VB Script or WMI to do this, or possibly reg hack. If your physical network adapters are of different make/models, good luck automating this since network settings in the registry are indexed by NIC make/model.
