VMware – Force shutdown of a stuck VM

Print Friendly

Sometimes a VM is stuck and can’t be killed with vSphere Client

Login through ssh to the Esxi server and get a list of running VMs identified by World ID:

esxcli vm process list

Power off one of the virtual machines from the list using this command:

esxcli vm process kill --type=force --world-id=7331933
