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

    snidely Novice


      I have looked at this thread:






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



      Error opening the remote virtual machine\“[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 -m "[datastore] Vista1/Vista1.vmx



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