VDS of the ESXi family work under the VMware vSphere ESXi hypervisor. In order to manage them, you have to download and install the corresponding client: (~341 Мбайт)

Note: the following instruction is only applicable to virtual machines that use ESXi version 6.5.0 and below. For more recent versions of ESXi, WEBUI should be used for management (learn more here).

Data for access to the hypervisor server is provided free of charge. To obtain it, contact the support service. VMware vSphere Client requires Windows 7 or a more recent version to run.

VDS Management

After launching the client, in the window that opens, a list of VDS is available on the left, and tabs for managing it and monitoring it can be seen on the right:

Getting Started - shutdown and pause, as well as limited editing of properties; Summary, Resource Allocation, Performance - general information about the system and resource consumption statistics; Events - system events; Console - console; Permissions - information about access rights.

Note that if you click within the console window, it will exclusively capture keyboard input. In order to release it, you must simultaneously press + .
