    Can't access ESXi VM with vmware-vmrc.exe. What's the datastore syntax?

    snidely Novice

       

      I have looked at this thread:

       

       

      http://communities.vmware.com/thread/156057

       

       

      but when I try to connect to my VM running on ESXi I get:

       

       

      Error opening the remote virtual machine 192.168.10.28\“[datastore1]Vista1/Vista1.vmx:

      Invalid datastore format '“[datastore1]Vista1/Vista1.vmx'.

       

       

      ESXi says my Virtual Machine Configuration File is at "[datastore1] Vista1/Vista1.vmx"

       

       

      I'm using the command line:

       

       

      vmware-vmrc.exe -h 192.168.10.28 -m "[datastore] Vista1/Vista1.vmx

       

       

      Then I log in as root and see the error.  My ESXi  options page is attached.
