How to find and kill a hung VM on ESX 3.5

First you must find the PID

ps auxfww | grep Name_of_the_VM

Then kill it

Stop Soft Technique:

# vmware-cmd /path/to/config/file.vmx stop soft

Stop Hard Technique:
# vmware-cmd /path/to/config/file.vmx stop hard

kill Techniques:
# kill <pid>

If the above doesn't work you may need to issue a kill –9

# kill -9 <pid>
