vShield Driver is now Guest Introspection.


These days one of my clients was working on an agentless antivirus solution for their VMware vSphere environment when suddenly he asked me: “Where’s vShield Driver ?

See an old Picture


It turns out, it has been renamed !!! Thin agent is now called Guest Introspection driver. 
The change came with ESXi 5.5 update 2 release.

But it’s implementation remains the same.

- starts VM tools installation
- select Custom


- Expand VMware Device Drivers / VMCI Driver


 See, it’s there as it supposed to be, just undercovered as a another feature; )
