hi experts,

I have an ESXi 5.1 with 2 vswitches (0 and 1) in different networks and in each a vmkernel port management.

on vswitch1 I have 1 virtual machine group with some VM's.

when someone connects to the esx via management on vswitch1 and opens a console for a vm, how can someone else view the same console through management on vswitch0 ?

When I try, I can open the console for the vm through management on vswitch0, but it opens a new session. I want to connect to the already existing console session from vswitch1.

Is this possible ? If yes, please tell me how ?

regards,

Wim

This is an issue that we can get adding / removing permissions in the vCSA 6.0. We can also have issues searching for users / groups in the AD (using your identify sources). This is how one of the ways to handle this issues and fix it.
When we have a dead host and we lose all connections to the ESXi, and we need to find a way to move all VMs from that dead ESXi host.
