We sometimes needs serial console access across Windows VM or Linux to SG-VA in the same ESXi hypervisor.


Vmware ESXi 6.5, 6.7, 7.0




Default Serial Port on the SG-VA is configured as Physical serial port.

*Please be aware when these settings have to change, VMs should be shutdown. 

It is used from when outside of Hypervisor is accessed, but another VM on the same Hypervisor cannot be used because physical serial port is occupied by SG-VA hence another VM cannot recognize it.

It can be changed to  Use named pipe.
