USB CD Drvie on VMWare
Posted on 2010-09-13
We have a VMWare server that a previous network engineer setup for us and since none of us have any real knowledge or documentation on this, need to know how I can get a session to access a CD Drvie plugged into the host machine via USB.
The host server is running VMWare ESXi 4.0.0 build 244038 with vSphere Client 4.0.0.
The virtual server is Windows 2003 R2 which hosts an IIS install for our web applications on the network.
We cannot log onto the VM session via domain or local admin accounts since a problem with our network switch so I want to use our recovery CD to change the admin password on this server.
What do I need to do to be able to use the USB based CD drive on this session?
