Managing VMWare ESXi 3.5

04.03.2009 · Posted in VM Ware ESXi 3.5

Four ways to manage VMWare ESXi 3.5. 

  • VI Client – Provides you with a GUI to manage your virtual machines. This can be downloaded from VMware website or if you go to your ESXi server Welcome Page, you can get it there too.



  • SSH – Before you can SSH onto the ESXi machine, you need to enable SSH first. Follow this link here.


  • VMware Infrastructutre Remote Command Line – This is similar to the VI Client but is a command line version instead of GUI. Download from here.


  • VMware Infrastructure Tookit – Allows VMware administrators to automate tasks such as backup. Download from here.
