Commands with an esxcfg Prefix

Important VMware recommends that you use ESXCLI or the vCLI commands with the vicfg prefix. Commands with the esxcfg prefix are available mainly for compatibility reasons and are now obsolete.
vCLI esxcfg- commands are equivalent to vicfg- commands, but not completely equivalent to the deprecated esxcfg- service console commands.
Commands with an esxcfg Prefix lists all vCLI vicfg- commands for which a vCLI command with an esxcfg prefix is available.
