With ESXi 5.0 it's now possible to start the Direct Console User Interface within a SSH (Tech Support Mode) session. Simply enter dcui in your SSH session as shown in the first image and the DCUI will be started. The login screen shown in the second image will appear and you can login just as your would at the host's console. To close the DCUI within a SSH session press CTRL+C. The CTRL+C option also works with the console version of the DCUI, but in that case another instance of the DCUI will be spawned to replace the terminated DCUI process.
