msf > use auxiliary/admin/vmware/poweron_vm
msf auxiliary(poweron_vm) > show options

Module options (auxiliary/admin/vmware/poweron_vm):

   Name      Current Setting         Required  Description
   ----      ---------------         --------  -----------
   PASSWORD  vmwareESXpassword       yes       The password to Authenticate with.

   RPORT     443                     yes       The target port

   VM        XPSP3CloneMe            yes       The VM to try to Power On

Running the module gives little output but nothing more is needed besides the success or failure of powering on the virtual machine.
