vimsh vmsvc/device.connection

Usage: device.connection vmid deviceKey connect

Connect/Disconnect the virtual device specified

example: disconnect cdrom device from VM

Get the ID of your VM in question using (scroll using shift page up / page down if you have to)


Write down the VM ID for example it can be a number like 4400

Find the key for your VirtualCDrom by querying the hardware devices for your VM.

vmsvc/device.getdevices 4400

Scroll up again and write down the Key, in my case it is 3000

Now disconnect the CDrom device by running:

vmsvc/device.connection 4400 3000 false

Use true if you want to connect the device.
