mac and vsphere client

I remote into my work windows 7 pc via TS and launched the vSphere client at my remote pc.
I was not able to come out from console session  on a linux appliance which does not have vmtools.
My mouse was stuck inside the console session.  When I press option or combination of comand and option did not work.

This is to be expected. There is no magic fix. Hence why it's recommended to have VMware Tools in all virtual machines. I understand this is an appliance from vendor which does not have VMware Tools, maybe time to ask them the question, WHY does it not have VMware Tools, to aid management, VMware vSphere has been around for a while now.

Also you will find some other strange issues occurring when you RDP into a Terminal Server session, and run the vSphere Client, and then Open a remote console to a VM.

Double consoles, with RDP, Teamviewer, WebEx, Log Me In, all have strange and weird issues.

I would recommend and encourage you to start using the Web Client. Like it or hate it, the vSphere Client is now deprecated, e.g. retired, and future versions of vSphere WILL NOT longer even work or connect with the vSphere Client. This old C# legacy client, is no longer being developed, and has no new features e.g. management of v10 or v11 VMs, and/or adding items to them.

So, again, time to start practicing with the web client.
