Follow these steps to start or stop a VM from the CLI of your ESX server:
- First, find the full path to your virtual machine by typing: #vmware-cmd -l
- To start a VM type: #vmware-cmd <path to your VM> start
- To stop a VM type: #vmware-cmd <path to your VM> stop (hard). This option is optional. It will force a hard stop of your VM.
