    Stop a VM from local access

    jlazkano Novice

      Hello again, thank to this forum users I can access localy to my server. I have problems with a VM (has the same IP as ESXi) so I need to power down the VM.


      I read on some pages how to do that. I need to access to a console and tye this:


      1. List all registered VM on the server: # vmware-cmd -l

      2. Stop a VM: # vmware-cmd <path.vmx> stop


      I don't know how to access to the console, when I enter with root/pass on local access, I get this screen: IMG_20101215_121037.jpg


      I read this page to stop a VM: http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1014165


      Are thoose steps correct?


      Thanks for all your help.


      Best regards.
