Multiple character repeat through vSphere Client console

This article was written by Duncan Epping over at I have posted here purely for my own ability to find this setting in the future. I needed it today while building vShield Manager VM across a WAN Link. Every time I tried to type the username admin it entered it as aaadddmmmiiinnn obviously very frustrating. This is how you fix it.

  • Power off the VM
  • Edit Settings
  • Click the Options Tab
  • Click “General”
  • Click “Configuration Parameters”
  • Click “Add Row”
  • Enter the name: keyboard.typematicMinDelay
  • Enter the value: 2000000
