In many environments disabling mob is one of the many security hardening that they do. A while ago i made a nifty powershell script which creates a shell script inside each esxi to disable mod and deletes that shell script. What is the need of doing something if you don't have a way of verifying the same ? I am attempting to create a script which can do the same and here is my 1st failed attempt. It will tell you whether the mob is disabled or  not but not the way i intended but for the time being this has to do. check out the mobdisabler script here. https://github.com/gajuambi/vmware
