Maintenance Mode Logo/ identification in ESXi Management Console window

This post was originally published on this site

Hello VMware Team,


New idea for a feature that can help large ESXi environments.


My suggestion is to implement a Logo or Identification mark in ESXi Management Console window that we can identify and confirm us that the particular host is under Maintenance Mode.


Example: In large Environments, Multiple hosts which has similar host names with one or two letters difference and can create confusion while working with management console to reboot/ shutdown and Maintenance activities performed via iLO or other tools.


Sometimes technicians reboot or shutdown the hosts which are not under maintenance mode instead of the actual host because of small confusion in host names.


I have attached the screenshot with suggested logo in ESXi Management console.


Hope this idea will help large ESXi environments.


Do let me know your thoughts on this.



Suman Pasi.
