To power on a virtual machine from the command line:
  1. List the inventory ID of the virtual machine with the command:

    vim-cmd vmsvc/getallvms |grep <vm name>

    Note: The first column of the output shows the vmid.

  2. Check the power state of the virtual machine with the command:

    vim-cmd vmsvc/power.getstate <vmid>

  3. Power-on the virtual machine with the command:

    vim-cmd vmsvc/power.on <vmid>
