vSphere Plugin (BETA) - required software components missin

Post by Nuggel1234 »

Hi,

I wanted to try the new vsphere plugin and executed the commands in the documentation:

python3 -m pip install --upgrade pip
python3 -m pip install --upgrade setuptools wheel
python3 -m pip install --upgrade pyvmomi

I get:

-bash: pyhton3: command not found

Any ideas?

Hello @Nuggel1234,

You can install Python 3 by using your package manager (dnf/yum on CentOS/RHEL/Oracle, apt/apt-get on Debian/Ubuntu) to install Python 3 with

Code: Select all

[package-manager] install python3
or by upgrading Nagios XI.

Hi Nuggel1234,

I am not sure how your machine was set up but you can also try running the following commands to see if python is detected.

Code: Select all

python --version
which python
or

Code: Select all

python3 --version
which python3
If it looks like it is installed you can always check your path environment variables...see link

Hey @Nuggel1234

Did manually installing python 3 like mentioned above solve the issue for you? If so we can close this thread.
