You can run vCLI commands from an administration server on which you installed the vCLI package.

After installation, the VMware DCLI folder is available inside your vCLI installation path. You must open a command prompt in your installation folder path and navigate to the VMware DCLI folder.

You must specify a server, user name, and password. If you specify credstore-add, DCLI creates a credential store file on the local machine. As a result, you are no longer required to specify the user name and password when you run DCLI commands again.
