I’m attending a training class this week – vSphere Troubleshooting – and have used the vMA (vSphere Management Assistant) for the first time. In the lab guide we began by deploying the virtual appliance for vMA. One of the first steps said to define the “keyboard.typematicMinDelay” on our new VM. I wasn’t familiar with this setting, so I Googled it and found this VMware KB Article:
This setting resolves a possible issue where characters are repeated in the console when accessing it over a slow WAN link. I’ve ran into this problem before, but never took the time to find a resolution.
