VMSpere setup and logon need assistance?

HAve a VMware running, able to logon to the VMserer using root account, but not sure how to start my virtual servers.
I also was using VSphere 6.7 to access the server and now have gotten 5.5 but not sure how to upgrade to 6.7.
Question 1 command in linux to start VM ware servers
Question 2 how do I upgrade to VSpere 6.7 and then logon to my VMware Esx 4.1?

Okay, I'm a little confused here by your opening post....

You mention vSphere 6.7, 5.5, ESX 4.1 ?

So.... do you have VMware vSphere Hypervisor 6.7 (ESXi 6.7) installed ?

You use a Web Browser to Access the Hypervisor, and create and start machines ?

You also need a Web Browser to Enable SSH and ESXi Shell ?

Unless you are logged on at the console ?

I'm logged in the VMware Exi 4.1 console...
Ok, it is a bit confusing.  I have taken over a position that has a vmware environment setup for 2 servers.
We lost power and I was able to start vmware on linux box but cannot start the virtual servers.
Okay, so this is ESX 4.1 ?

Install the client software, e.g. vSphere Client, connect to the server and check the Inventory, and then power on the virtual servers.


see here, where you can list the Inventory, and Start the VMs from the console.
