Ops Panel for ESX

The Operations Panel is a script tool which runs on the client browser and extends the default ESX server web page with a short list of all available virtual machines. It gives the user the ability to perform simple power operations (start, stop, suspend, resume). The user interface is easily accessible for the most common operations on an ESX host, and is available directly from the ESX home page.
