ESXi console session repeated characters

Ever get the dreaded repeated characters when you’ve remote desktopped into a windows machine to to gain console access to CUCM or other UC app via vShpere client?

Here’s the fix:

With the guest OS shut down edit its settings.  under Options | General | Configuration Parameters add a new row:

keyboard.typematicMinDelay = 2000000

Start the VM back up.  Now you can actually interact with the CLI properly.
