vCenter Client Shortcuts

Lately I've been having great fun using shortcut keys to control vCenter speeding up administration. There are very useful combinations, like <Ctrl>-<Shift> and <Ctrl>. Here is a list which I use a lot:

General views

<Ctrl>-<Shift>-<V> Switch to Inventory -> VMs and Templates
<Ctrl>-<Shift>-<H> Switch to Inventory -> Hosts and Clusters
<Ctrl>-<Shift>-<D> Switch to Inventory -> Datastores
<Ctrl>-<Shift>-<N>

Switch to Inventory -> Networking

An other handy is find:

<Ctrl>-<Shift>-<F> Switch to Inventory -> Search (but it Finds for you)

When a VM is selected, you can do quick cool stuff:

<Ctrl>-<B> Start VM (like boot it)
<Ctrl>-<D> Shutdown VM (so a soft shutdown by VMware Tools)
<Ctrl>-<E> Power Off VM (hard shutdown - the end)
<Ctrl>-<T> Reset the VM (Terminator)
<Ctrl>-<Z> Zuspend VM (I know - bad English)

Three shortcut keys you can always use regardless the focus:

<Ctrl>-<S> Schedule a new task
<Ctrl>-<M> Create Alarm
<Ctrl>-<P> Define Permissions

Other Shortcuts are Context Sensitive, meaning that it depends on where your focus is (what is selected) what kind of action it does. All those are using the <Ctrl> key combination. Things like creating a new folder, new VM, new host (but is quite context sensitive, it doesn't make sense to create folders in VMs, or create a new vApp on a host):

<Ctrl>-<N> New VM <- Love this one
<Ctrl>-<A> New vApp
<Ctrl>-<H> New Host
<Ctrl>-<L> New Cluster
<Ctrl>-<O> New Resource Pool
<Ctrl>-<F> New Folder
<Ctrl>-<D> New Datacenter

Here is the rest of the <Ctrl>-<Shift> list:

<Ctrl>-<Shift>-<E> Switch to Management -> Events
<Ctrl>-<Shift>-<I> vCenter Server Settings
<Ctrl>-<Shift>-<L> Switch to Administration -> Licensing
<Ctrl>-<Shift>-<M>

Switch to Management -> Maps

<Ctrl>-<Shift>-<O> Switch to Administration -> System Logs
<Ctrl>-<Shift>-<P> Switch to Management -> Host Profiles
<Ctrl>-<Shift>-<R> Switch to Administration -> Roles
<Ctrl>-<Shift>-<S> Switch to Administration -> Sessions
<Ctrl>-<Shift>-<T> Switch to Management -> Scheduled Tasks
<Ctrl>-<Shift>-<U> Switch to Management -> Customization Specifications Manager
<Ctrl>-<Shift><Z> Hmmm Debug Stuff. I would recommend not changing this!

And do not forget the <Ctrl>-<Alt>-<Ins> for sending a <Ctrl>-<Alt>-<Del> to the OS in the VM and a nice one: <Ctrl>-<Alt>-<Enter> to make the console session full screen (use <Ctrl>-<Alt>-<Enter> to exit again). <Ctrl>-<Shift>-<X> to exit the console session.

Others is more navigation stuff:

<Alt>-<Arrow Left/Right> Go back and to in the history, which is a very useful feature and often misunderstand, take a good look at it!
<Alt>-<HOME> Go Home <- Also very useful!!!
<Ctrl>-<TAB> Scroll through the tabs
<Ctrl>-<Shift>-<TAB> Scroll back through the tabs

There you go - a quite complete list with shortcut keys. By the way, the interface itself exposes a lot of shortcut keys. Some are quite useless, others very useful. And I think there are some missing: like "edit settings..." from the VM. So I sure hope VMware reads this and add that feature - save me some clicks.

Have fun using the shortcut keys and make your Virtual Infrastructure administration more time efficient.
