iVMControl


Connect to your Vmware® vCenter or to your ESX(i) server and take control of your Virtual Machines on the go!

The ideal application for Data Center Administrators who want to have a life outside of work too! :) It does not replace your vSphere® Client, but it comes really close to it.

iVMControl allows you to connect remotely and securely to your Virtualization Hypervisors and monitor the activity on the hosts and on the VMs. You will be able to check alarms, events and task status, see the status of every host and VM, the operating system installed, the power state, the status and version of your vmtools, check if any VM has raised an alarm and so on.

You can also remotely power on, power off or suspend virtual machines, enter or exit maintenance mode, reboot, disconnect or reconnect your ESX hosts.

You can see the graphs for the CPU usage, memory, NIC card usage, HDD usage for both VMs and Hosts, you can make/restore/manage snapshots of VMs.

In addition, we offer VMotion support and screenshots for VMs (more to come...)

A WiFi connection is recommended, but not required. You can also use VPN connections if you have a VPN client on your device.

For slower connections, you might want to tweak your connection timeout parameter (by default 30 sec).

** NOTE ** Please note that for ESXi *FREE*, Vmware decided to offer read-only access to the management APIs. This applies to all management applications, and is enforced by Vmware. What this means for iVMControl is that if you have a FREE ESXi, you will be able to use only the 'read-only' (monitoring) functions of iVMControl. If you have a paid license of ESXi (Essentials license is enough) this does not apply to you.

Console support for ESX/vCenter.

Requirements:
Please note that regardless of the connection point (ESX(i)/vCenter), the console connects *directly* to the ESX host where the VM you want to monitor resides. This implies you need to make sure that your ESX hosts have IP addresses that are *routable*, otherwise you will not be able to access the VNC console; you need to make sure that the port configured (in the range 5900-5999) is allowed through your firewall for each ESX device you want to connect to.

Furthermore, please make note of the fact that only the 8-character password is encrypted with the standard VNC client. All VNC client traffic is sent unencrypted across the network. If security is a concern in your organization, you need to be aware of this. You can disable your VNC terminal once you are done with the Console session (use Configure Console and disable VNC altogether).

VMWare Tools needs to be installed on each and every VM that is monitored through iVMControl's console connection. Check the Vmware knowledge base on other requirements:

Pure Awesomeness *STILL* This app is amazing. It literally allows full control of an ESXi or vCenter host. It is very well executed, connects quickly, and even caches some data so it runs fast. Well done! :-)

Perfect for the Mobile Admin This has been a great arsenal in my mobile toolbox, whether I'm using it on my Note 3 or my Nexus 10. I run a medium-size server/VM company, and this combined with an SSH app, my WHMCS app, and my Zabbix app makes me a walking support center. Am using this on vCenter 5.5 to control around 1,200 VMs, and as one person noted, this is great to login just before I arrive at the data center and put a node into maintenance mode just before I arrive, allowing it to vMotion everything off and be ready for me to work on when I arrive.

Don't bother Unfortunately I missed the refund window. Live console has no mouse control, app crashed twice so far in the first few minutes of use. Only rely on this app if you dislike your job (and want to get fired because it failed on you!)

Works Great I use this software when I need to run to our 2nd datacenter to do any maintenance or work (such as installing 10Gbps cards etc). I can wait to put the machines into maintenance mode until I'm there, connecting to our wireless on my phone, firing up the VPN client and this utility to connect to our vCenter Server. It's a *lot* easier than lugging the old laptop around
