VMware: CD/DVD Drive 1 (Connecting...)screen

Postby guest » Tue Dec 17, 2013 5:12 pm

Situation: The client installed VMware ESXi 5.5 and vCenter server. When he tries to create a VM and captures local vCenter Server DVD drive, it shows CD/DVD Drive 1 (Connecting...)screen.

Cause: This issue occur because he doesn't have local Administrator access to the operating system running the vSphere Client.

1. Login admin account.
2. Run as administrator by following these steps:
1) Close the vSphere Client.
2) Right-click the vSphere Client icon and Click Run as Administrator.
3) Right-click the virtual machine and click Edit Settings.
4) Click CD/DVD and change the device to Passthrough IDE.
5) Power on the virtual machine and connect to the local CD/DVD drive.
6) Select the virtual machine from the vSphere Client menu and Click Inventory > Virtual Machine > Guest > Send Ctrl+Alt+Del.
