I have a problem. Recently, I've shutdown a ESX3i server using Infrastructure client. Now, I can't connect to the server. Ping doesn't works.
When I do a shutdown of a ESX3i server, the machine is power off or only the OS VMware ESX3i ?
How can I power on the server after doing a shutdown of a ESX3i server?
ESXi Server is the host - Once this is shutdown all the VM's you have running on it will also power down.
With VMWare workstation you can create standalone VM's to run without the host but you need a VM agent on the target windows machine
Yes, I know. ESX3i is the host, but when you connect using VI Client to de host to manage the VM's, you have to specify the IP of the host.
I shutdown de host using VI Client, and now, I dont know how to power on again remotely because conectivity to the host with VI Client has been lost.
Anyone know how to do this?
Where is ESX host located, is it in remote site?
If it is in remote site and does not have ILO configured, then some one have to go physically and need to power on the server, there is no otherway to power on a ESX host from remote site.
Moved to ESXi forum.
