victorbabkov -> How change remote console port on ESXi 5 (14.Mar.2012 5:05:15 AM)

Hello all !

How change remote console port on ESXi 5?

In oldest version recommended this way:

0. Login to the ESX host Console OS as root
1. Edit /etc/xinetd.d/vmware-authd and change the default port 902 to different port For example: 9022
2. Edit /etc/vmware/config and change the following line as indicated authd.client.port = "9022"
3. Restart xinetd and mgmt-vmware services by running:
#service xinetd restart
#service mgmt-vmware restart

But in 5.0 there is no xinetd.d directory. I change port in /etc/vmware/config and add in ESXi firewall new rule for this connection.

Now vSphere Client attempt connect to new port 9022, but ESXi still listen on port 902.

esxcli network ip connection list

...

0.0.0.0:902 Listening

...


How change this?

Interesting, I would like to know also.

Could it be because in ESXi there is no more Service Console. Not sure if Remote Console Port refers to Service Console.

VSphere 5 is ESXi only. No more ESX and thus no more Service Console.

I am always confused with VMware's terms.
