Anyone have any experience with ESX Server 3i version 3.5 Embedded USB keys?

Our new C class blades are using the embedded USB key and setting it up is pretty straightforward like assinging ip address and host name, but does anyone know how you enable SSH or even get to the command line on these?

The security profile does not have the option of enabling SSH...Not sure why it's different??

Thanks!

Accessing the console is only supported when directed so by VMware support and SSH would not be supported at all. Personally for production I wouldn't enable it. Here's how to do both - http://www.vm-help.com/esx/esx3i/ESXi_enable_SSH.php

It's different because VMware has all but eliminated the Service Console in ESXi. What are you trying to do that you need command line or SSH access for?
