How to connect to the host an ESXi 6.5

We can connect to a single host two ways:

  • Via a traditional Windows C++ client (you’ll need to install it on your Windows workstation)
  • Via an HTML 5 web-based browser (no software to install)

I’m sure everyone’s familiar with the traditional Windows client, so let me show you the connection via an HTML5 web-based browser.

Oprire/restart sistem ESXI cu comenzi din consola ssh

Avem o masina fizica cu ESXI iar pe aceasta ruleaza mai multe sisteme de operare.

Dintr-un anumit motiv, una din acele masini virtuale este blocata in procesul de pornire sau de oprire.

Daca dorim sa remediem situatia iar noi nu suntem langa masina, ESXI sa o putem reseta de la buton, va trebui sa o fortam la un restart sau un shutdown din linie de comanda prin consola ssh.

Atentie ! Operatia de restart a ESXI-ului din vmware client cand una din masinile virtuale ramane blocata la oprire sau pornire, nu functioneaza si putem mentine conectivitatea cu masina pana la restartul fizic din buton.

How to install an ESXi 6.5

You might want to know the other methods for installing ESXi 6.5. Where can you install ESXi 6.5 – to the local disk or elsewhere? In fact, there are five different ways to install and deploy VMware ESXi 6.5:

  1. Installation to a USB stick – the server boots from the USB stick;
  2. Installation to the local SATA/SAS or FC drive (RAID1);
  3. Installation to an SD flash card (certain hardware manufacturers provide a mirrored “double” slot);
  4. Boot from LUN via a hardware iSCSI card, FC or FCoE (fiber channel over Ethernet);
  5. Stateless booting via VMware auto-deployment.

What do you need? Basically, two things:

  • A hardware device that is on the VMware hardware compatibility list (HCL)
  • An ESXi installation ISO, which you can download from the VMware website, and which you’ll burn to a CD-ROM

Instalare masina virtuala ESXI in VMware Workstation (virtual in virtual)

Se doreste folosirea unui sistem ESXI pentru studiu individual. Dar pentru ca nu avem un PC disponibil sau nu vrem sa facem un dual boot pe un sistem fizic apelam la instalarea ESXI in aplicatia VMware.

In VMware instalam masini virtuale (una din aceste masini poate fi chiar un ESXI) care la randul lor pot rula alte masini virtuale.

Deci la final vom rula o masina virtuala in interiorul altei masini virtuale.
