Is PowerShell with PowerCLI an Option? If yes:
Connect to vCenter/ESXi:
Connect-VIServer -Server ServerName -Username BlaUserBla -Password BlaPassBla
Get-VM VMName | Open-VMConsoleWindow
You can use the "VMware Remote Console" but you need to know the moid of the vm:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware Remote Console\vmrc.exe" vmrc://firstname.lastname@example.org/?moid=vm-1Drink coffee.. Do stupid things faster with more energy...1 person found this helpful
No PowerShell is not an option. I know cmd is an option for sure. This department's IT department is very strict.
Great article. But vsphere client software will be utilized by my customer. Not vsphere web client.
I was able to download and install "powerCLI" I ran the commads in PowerCLI but it open the console window in a web broswer.
I am trying to accomplish, is to have the vsphere client software open, log in to, and then the vSphere Client software opens up. I am able to do all of this using : "vSphere Client" "C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\Infrastructure\Virtual Infrastructure Client\Launcher\VpxClient.exe" -s 10.x.x.x -u root -p $#%#^" in command line.
After the vsphere client software is running, I then need to launch one of the VMs in its Console within the software from CMD or from POWERCLI
