(New) - Supports vSphere 5.5

Connect to your Vmware® vCenter or to your ESX(i) server and take control of your Virtual Machines on the go!

The ideal application for Data Center Administrators who want to have a life outside of work too! :) It does not replace your vSphere® Client, but it comes really close to it.

Please check this link for VMConsole in-app configuration. Please let us know your feedback for things that are not clear.


iVMControl allows you to connect remotely and securely to your Virtualization Hypervisors and monitor the activity on the hosts and on the VMs.


-check alarms, events and task status

-status for every host and VM

-Power operations on VMs and Hosts

-Performance graphs (CPU/memory/NIC/HDD)

-make/restore/manage snapshots of VMs.

-Grouping of Hosts into datacenters

-Grouping of VMs into host systems

-Multiple vCenter/ESXi connections

-VMotion support

-screenshots for VMs

As in-app purchase we offer the following additional capability:

- VM console via VNC (this is a one time purchase, it doesn't matter how many virtual machines you have, it's still the price of one in-app).

Console support for ESX/vCenter:

Please note that regardless of the connection point (ESX(i)/vCenter), the console connects *directly* to the ESX host where the VM you want to monitor resides. This implies you need to make sure that your ESX hosts have IP addresses that are *routable*, otherwise you will not be able to access the VNC console. IPs in the form 10.x.x.x or 192.168.x.x are *not* routable, if your ESX has one of these, you will not be able to access the console through vCenter. Even if the IPs are routable, you need to make sure that the port configured (in the range 5900-5909) is allowed through your firewall for each ESX device you want to connect to.

In case of a stand-alone ESX(i), a private IP can be used, but the port(s) needs to be forwarded in a similar manner (E.g. if your ESX has IP address and your Internet-facing IP address is say, you need to make sure both the SSL port (443) and the VNC ports used (5900-5909) are being forwarded to the *same* IP address - -> and ->

Furthermore, please make note of the fact that only the 8-character password is encrypted with the standard VNC client. All VNC client traffic is sent unencrypted across the network. If security is a concern in your organization, you need to be aware of this. You can disable your VNC terminal once you are done with the Console session (use Configure Console and disable VNC altogether).

VMWare Tools needs to be installed on each and every VM that is monitored through iVMControl's console connection. Check the Vmware knowledge base on other requirements:



- Single click, pan and zoom are standard as any iPhone application

- Tap with two fingers for right click

- Ctrl-Alt-Del button sends a Ctrl-Alt-Del sequence to the VM

- Keyboard button will raise/lower the keyboard.

More to come (let us know what other features you would like to see!).

NOTE VMware decided to offer read-only access to the management APIs for the *FREE* version of ESXi. This applies to all management applications, and is enforced by VMware. What this means for iVMControl is that if you have a FREE ESXi, you will be able to use only the 'read-only' (monitoring) functions of iVMControl.

Nice, but beware of in-app purchases needed

Nice interface and decent functionality. BEWARE...vMotion & VM console (screenshot only) costs an additional $0.99 EACH making this app really cost around $12. I would say that had these been included (or clearly disclosed prior to purchase) then the hefty price tag of $10 would have been more worth it (to me).

Would be great to have a full VM console or RDP option--- not just a screenshot.

Otherwise, nice work!

3/5 stars

Good app with problems

I love the app but with Vmware nipping at your heals with an app that does a lot of what your app brings but for free I would have hoped for a bit more.

Vcenter 4.1 (ESX 4.1 Hosts) and vcenter 4.0 (ESX 4 and ESXi 4 Hosts)
- takes screenshot (says processing to 100%) then asks for creds where password is not obscured(really not happy about that). After entering nothing happens, view picture button stays grey, tried closing app and reopening with same result. Tried entering wrong password, still nothing (no error)?- Tested on iPhone 4 and iPad 2 (both on 4.3)
-Need refresh button on top of every page, find having to log out or switch around randomly to get data updated.
- some of us manage many vcenter sites, can we have the ability to store more than 1 credential?
- since you are enumerating the VMFS volumes to grab a screenshot, anyway to browse datastore, may be easier to open the PNG screenshots?

Thanks for brining us this app, I'm happy for what it brings but having to spend 99 cents more on a feature that doesn't work is rather lame.
