    Is there a way to get the the VMWare console? What is the root password when I ssh to Hypervisor or is there another user?

    Scott,

    When you say vmware Console do you mean the DCUI? If so you cannot access it. You can use the Vsphere client to do most of the configuration or use Cisco cli to do some stuff you need.

    The user you can use to log into Vsphere client is :¿esx-admin¿ and password is ¿change_it¿

    Thanks,

    Radhika

    The DCUI would be nice but what I really wanted is "command line" access on the ESXi server. The DCUI was supported on the SRE with the ESXi 4.0 so I could setup "command line" access by pressing Alt-F! and typing "unsupported". This 4.1 version of ESXi responds to SSH but i do not know the user/password.  Command line funtions have been found to be a great resouce especially when bad things happen within VMWare.

    The command line access to the user has been blocked.  Can you give some examples of what you use these commands. Some debug capabilities have been added to the Cisco ClI but if what you are looking for is not available than we can look into adding those.

    Thanks,
