Hi,

My VI client crashes when I try to access console view on any server on ESXi, ESX foundation or enterprise. I do this true Windows XP VPN. RDP works fine. VNC also works.

I get a message saying VI couldnt stablish connecton to %vm%

I can access all other features.

Has anyone  had this problem?

I would like to test some solutions when I get home tomorrow.

Thank you in advance

Please update whether the ESXi / ESX Hosts are being managed by vCenter and whether you are connecting through the vSphere Client to the vCenter server.
