When a user connects to a Linux desktop, the desktop can also be displayed in the vSphere console for the Linux virtual machine. You can configure Linux virtual machines to ensure that the vSphere console is blank when users connect to their desktops.

Procedure

On the ESXi host, add the following line to the Linux virtual machine's vmx file.
RemoteDisplay.maxConnections = "0"

The vSphere console display remains blank even when you connect to the virtual machine when the user is logged out of the desktop.
