Look at uname -a and you'll know what the host kernel is, and the default
esx 2.5.x and 3.x.x is bash.
esxi does have a shell, but you need to know how to access it as it's
disabled by default ;-0
vmware -v or --version (or something) will tell you what version of esx it's
running (or use vi-client).
Is this what you wanted to know?
