I am trying to do a demo of VMware View 4.5. I have the following set up: One host running ESXi 4.1 being managed by a vCenter server (which is on a virtual server on our production VMware implementation), another virtual server running the Connection manager.
I can log into the management gui, and I have pointed it at the vCenter server, I have a Win7 VM on that host/vCenter and I have installed the client in it, and I have it showing in Inventory in the management console, it is in a pool, and is entitled and enabled.
I have checked the firewall on the Connection Manager server (2008r2) and it has all the proper entries.
The problem is that I can't connect to it from a client. I have the client running on my Win7 laptop, and when I run it, I put in either the ip address or fqdn of the Connection Manager server. Most of the time when I do this, I just get the spinning circle icon and nothing else. Sometimes I will immediately get an error message saying that it can't connect to the server.
Have I missed a step somewhere? Why else wouldn't I be able to connect?
