ESXi 5 and how to start SSH – NTP – ESXi Shell – Active Directory Service and so on.

In previous versions users had to access directly the ESXi server in order to re-configure configuration files to enable services that VMware did not want to support. However in ESXi5 these services can be enabled/disabled by using the vSphere Client. It is very simple.

In vSphere go to:

Configuration Tab

– Select “Security Profile”

– You will see all available services ESXi5 comes with and their status.

– Select properties and you will be able to enable/disable services and you will also be able to configure basic firewall rules for that specific service.
