How to add Annotation/Notes for a host in ESXI server


I’m using vmware-iso builder to create host in ESXi server, can anybody help me how to add annotation/notes for a host to identify/classify based on the description.


Hey there,

You can use the notes option to set the VM annotation. Hope this will help you.


i couldn’t find option for vmware-iso builder. The link which you shared is for vsphere-iso.


Sorry I got confused between both builders :man_facepalming:
You can use vmx_data to set the annotation. For example:

"vmx_data" : { 
     "annotation": "your note here"

Let me know if it works for you.
