I want to access the local console connecting a monitor and keyboard to the server running VMWare ESXi 3.5


You must start the Tech Support Mode to access the command-line interface.

Press: Alt+F1 and write the word unsupported blindly (the characters will not show up, write carefully).

At the prompt, write your root password.
