SSH access to VMWare ESXi

1. Access the ESXi console and press alt+F1
2. Type unsupported
3. Enter the root password(There is no prompt, input is blind)
4. At the prompt type “vi /etc/inetd.conf”
5. Find the line that starts with “ssh”
6. Remove the “#” (press the “x” if the cursor is on the character)
7. Save “/etc/inetd.conf” by typing “:wq!”
8. Restart the management service “/sbin/ restart”

I had to restart the server in my testing, but restarting the service should work too.
