    Hi,

    I need to add a nagios user plus keys, plus scripts directory and for these to remain beyond reboots on an esxi server.

    I am aware of the scratchpad config parameter ( Creating a persistent scratch location for ESXi 4.x/5.x/6.x (1033696) | VMware KB )

    but I need to define three different locations  ( the homedir location ) and the keys ( /etc/ssh/nagios-keys)  and the scripts directory

    I tried another suggestion of adding the sticky bit ( chmod +t  ) to these directories but this does not work, they are all lost on reboot

    Thanks

    Paul
