Accessing your virtual machine console allows you to view information about a virtual machine, work with the guest operating system, and perform operations that affect the guest operating system.

You might be required to download and install VMware Remote Console Plug-In. Click OK in the dialog box that appears.


The virtual machine is powered on.


  1. Click My Cloud.
  2. In the left pane, click VMs.
  3. Select a virtual machine, right-click, and select Popout Console.
    If you close or refresh a virtual machine console while you have one or more client devices connected, those devices are disconnected.
