Activate SSH on ESXi 4.1 via vSphere Client

Some months ago I wrote a post about how to activate SSH on a ESXi 4.1 via console. But you can also activate SSH with the vSphere Client.

  1. Login to the vSphere Client
  2. Click on the configuration tab
    VMware vSphere Client ESXi
  3. Click on Security profile
  4. VMware vSphere Client ESXi Click on Properties
    VMware vSphere Client ESXi
  5. Click on Remote Tech Support (SSH)
    VMware vSphere Client ESXi
  6. Click on Options and choose the startup policy and click start
    VMware vSphere Client ESXi
  7. Now you can verify that the daemon shows as running in the Services Properties window
