How to kill a VM (VMWare)

If a virtual machine on your Host doesnt respond and you cannot kill/power it off, KILL it:

  • enable SSH on the ESX-Host
  • Connect via SSH to the ESX-Host
  • Enter the command „esxcli vm process list“ and note the World-ID of the unsresponsive VM
  • With this World-ID you can kill the process of the Virtual machine: esxcli vm process kill –type=soft –world-id 1077499
  • If it doesnt get killed soft, try it with hard or force
