Access the Service Console in VMware EXSi

Apart from being free, VMware EXSi 4.0 also cannot access the service console like EXS. It is not easy but it is possible.

1. From the ESXi console summary screen hit ALT-F1.
2. Enter the word "unsupported" (without quotes and there will be no echo).
3. Enter in the root password for your system.
