Enabling SSH and ESXi Shell via the VMware vSphere Client and DCUI

 This week I've been preparing for an Optimise and Troubleshooting Fast Track course and in this course we use the the command line a lot.

There's a number of different ways to enable SSH and the ESXi Shell.

One way is via the vSphere client

Launch the client

Hosts and Clusters View, select host, select configure tab and then Services and start the ESXi Shell and SSH

Another method is from the ESI hosts Direct Console User Interface DCUI

Login to the DCUI via the F2 key, go to Troubleshooting options and enable the services.
