    vMA WGET

    I've just installed vMA on our ESXi host as I'm having a pop at sorting out the automatic shutdowns in the event of a power failure, and I'm failing at a BASIC task.

    I need to download some files from sourceforge, but wget command is not found when I try that. Anyone know how I download file to the vMA client?

    Thanks,

    Use curl instead.

    Code:
    Welcome to vMA
    run 'vma-help' or see http://www.vmware.com/go/vma4 for more details.
    
    [vi-admin@vma ~]$ curl
    curl: try 'curl --help' for more information
    [vi-admin@vma ~]$ whereis curl
    curl: /usr/bin/curl /usr/share/man/man1/curl.1.gz
    [vi-admin@vma ~]$

    Hope this helps,

    Andy

    Ah, never mind. Got it sorted

    I'm trying to install the APC utility to control shutdowns - but the APC package needs dependencies and is failing. I'm used to Debian so can anybody help me install these dependancies? Has anybody set up this APC util in vMA before?
