Customizing the ESXi DCUI to show number of VMs

Last week there was a question that was posted internally asking if it was possible to customize the ESXi DCUI screen to include the number of Virtual Machines? Although there is nothing out of the box, you can in fact add add almost anything to the DCUI screen by modifying the /etc/vmware/welcome configuration file which I had blogged about several years back on adding a splash of color to the ESXi DCUI. There was even a recent VMware Fling that provides a VIB that applies a variety of DoD STIG implementations, one of which was to update the DCUI screen with some specific text.
