Enable SSH on ESXi
VMware ESXi is nice because it is a stripped free version on ESX. The problem is that the only way to manage it is from the VMware .NET GUI. Unless…
On the ESXi console :
unsupported(nothing will appear on the screen) then “Enter”;
- Enter the superuser password ;
- Run the
vi /etc/inetd.confcommand and find the “SSH” related line.
- Uncomment the line and save the changes.
Restart the ESXi server pour apply changes.
Now you should be able to remotely connect to the ESXi server using the SSH protocol.
