For some of you who are well versed with VMWare server and virtualization products, this might be a trivial. But since I migrated most of my virtual machines from VMWare server 1 to 2 and one of them were a Windows Server 2008 VM. However, when I opened the console for the Virtual machine, I could not figure out how to send a control alt delete to this machine from the console and since remote desktop was not enabled on this machine, I could not get to it remotely either. Well here is how you do it..
On the VMWare Console click on VMWare Remote Console, then on Menu item Troubleshoot and then on "Send Ctrl Alt Del"
You can also use the virtual on screen keyboard to send a ctrl + alt + del from the VMWare 2.0 Console to a virtual machine. To do this, simply click on the "Ease of Access" icon on the console and the enable "On Screen Keyboard"
Once Ctrl Alt Del has been sent to the remote machine, you will be presented with the logon screen
