When you no longer need to view or manage your target ESXi host, log out of the VMware Host Client.

Note

Closing a VMware Host Client session does not stop the host.

To log out of the ESXi host, click the user name at the top of the VMware Host Client window and select Log out from the drop-down menu.

You are now logged out of the VMware Host Client. Your target ESXi host continues to run all its normal activities.
