For anyone else who gets the issue:

mv: cannot stat 'vmware-vcli/pkg/vmware-vcli/bin/*': No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

I built this in a path with an upper-case letter e.g.

and found the binaries in a folder with all lower-case letters i.e.:

I haven't looked at the PKGBUILD or file, I just built it in the lower-case path.

@karol most likely this part:

mv "$pkgdir"/bin/* "$pkgdir"/usr/bin/

But it works for me. Maybe see what's in your $pkgdir at that point.

I have the following issue, any tips on how to solve this?:

This installer has successfully installed both vSphere CLI and the vSphere SDK
for Perl.

file:// works for me, but so does local:// so I'll update it if it fixes your issue.

Thank you for this package, however I had a small issue:
==> Making package: vmware-vcli (Tue Nov 15 13:25:27 PST 2016)
==> Retrieving sources...
-> Found for-arch.patch
==> ERROR: Unknown download protocol: file

I had to replace the source entries:

This was with Pacman v5.0.1 - libalpm v10.0.1

OK fixed the executable bit, thanks.

Thank you, I found the required file and successfully made the package. However, after installing, I had to set executable bit for /usr/lib/vmware-vcli/bin/esxcli/esxcli.

Try this link There I see "Build Number 3561779".

vdemin commented on 2016-10-11 09:04

Is it a mistake in the version number? The last version that I can find in 'My VMWare' is VMware-vSphere-CLI-6.0.0-2503617.

Any reason this has been out of date for over a year? If you are not able or willing to update, please disown so someone else can take over. Thanks
