How to shutdown or start up a guest operating system from esx console?

Jump to solution

Hi

I spend two hours looking for the command to shutdown a virtual guest operating system from the esx service console command line. I don't have any idea or response.

Can you help me please?

In case of disaster, I must go to my service console command line, and shutdown correctly the virtual machine guest operating system, and then the ESX server.

How?

Thanks

Hi, i think you can use your Virtual Infrastructure client. Otherwise you can use vmware-cmd command:

example: # vmware-cmd /vmfs/volumes/44ebf538-51cc7998-2525-00145e1b556a/printer/printer.vmx stop trysoft
