VMware vCloud Director has historically been written with the vCloud API as the primary API mechanism for API modification and access.
The vCloud API is being replaced by the open source vCloud Director OpenAPI, however the vCloud API can still be used to great effect on vCloud Director, up to and including vCD 10.x.

Here is a reference guide for some useful command line tools you can run on NSX-T.
NSX CLI (nsxcli) is the command line tool for troubleshooting NSX-T. It’s run in a non-root mode so you have to use the command structure available. For instance there is no grep, But you can use find and pipe instead.
You can use the nsxcli command line tool from various elements throughout the NSX-T deployment including NSX Manager, Edges and ESXi Transport Nodes.

Having recently passed my NSX-T VCP, I thought I’d share the command line tools I used to practice in a lab to get to grips with NSX-T installation, configuration, managing and troubleshooting.
I know I will be revisiting this site for reference in future. I hope you all enjoy it!
I will cover a walkthrough of some of these commands in another post if it’s new to you and link it here.
