Powering on a virtual machine from the command line.

This article provides steps to power on virtual machines from the command line (either through the ESX host console or through the RCLI/vSphere CLI) if the host cannot be managed from vCenter Server or from the vSphere Client. ResolutionNote: The steps in this article require root access to the host, either at the physical console or using SSH. For more information on enabling root access, see:

  2. Check the power state of the virtual machine with the command:

    vim-cmd vmsvc/power.getstate <vmid>

  3. Power-on the virtual machine with the command:

    vim-cmd vmsvc/power.on <vmid>
