New Standard vSwitch Creation in vSphere 6.5 Host Client

As we all knew vSphere Client is no longer available from vSphere 6.5 Onwards. Now we can connect with esxi directly by using the client embedded in esxi host, this client is known as Host Client. To access this use:-
username = root
password = as configured

Networking > Virtual Switches Tab > Add Standard virtual switch > provide the required details > add

Note:- In host client now we have functionality to configure vSwitch name and CDP. Earlier this option was available through CLI. I have checked this feature in vSphere Client and vSphere Web Client of vSphere 6.5 but this is still not available in them, it's only available in Host Client

 I have covered these topics in these previous posts:-
vSphere 6.5 GUI Client Options
vSphere 6.5 vSphere Client Unsupported Functionalities
