I recently did a remote upgrade via SSH from Ubuntu 10.10 to 11.04, which seemed to go well, rebooted when prompted. I waited a while and tried to reconnect and could not via SSH.
After a little digging, it looks like this server is actually a guest running on ESXi 4.0. I don't have physical access to the system, however I can log into it via SSH.
If I run
vim-cmd /vmsvc/getallvms I see the guest in question.
vim-cmd /vmsvc/power.getstate 720 indicates that the guest is powered on.
I'm stuck here. I assume that the guest doesn't have a valid IP address or SSH is turned off. After a couple hours of googling I still do not know how to get a shell open to the guest via the host.
Can anyone help me figure this out?
