Was trying to disable firewall option from ESXi . Though it was not recommanded but need to do that for a specific reason . First I tried with “chkconfig” but it was not listed there .However it was listed with  “esxcli” command . Here is how you do it .

esxcli network firewall set --enabled false



Problem :

was trying to install View Composer 2.5.0 on Production Vcentre the the error came up in the middle and was basically rolling back the installation .

Solution :

ok so here’s the resolution, right click the installer and select “run as administrator”

The funny thing is I was installing as Administrator as first point . Funny Windows .
