I have the following problem:
I have a Client machine with .NET 4.0.
This client has to connect to a VMware Virtual Center 2.5 as well as to a vSphere Environment.
VMware states that the vSphere client is backward compatible. Means, that it also can connect to VMware Virtual Center 2.5 Servers.
When I install the vSphere client, I can connect without any problem to the vSphere environment and open a console of a virtual machine.
When I'm trying to connect to the VMware Virtual Center server, I'm prompted to install a vSphere client upgrade, which I do. Other wise I can't connect.
When I'm connected with the vSphere Client to the VMware Virtual Center server, I can't open the console of virtual machines.
The error message is:
Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation
It is described here: http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1004281
I already tried the solution of the KB article, with no luck.
Also, I found this hint in the internet:
copy libeay32.dll and ssleay32.dll from C:\Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure\Virtual Infrastructure Client\2.5 to C:\Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure\Virtual Infrastructure Client\Launcher.
Tried it, without luck.
I observed that it doesn't matter on which ESX the VM I'm trying to connect resides. DNS resolution is working fine.
Do you have any idea?
Thanks and kind regards.
