When connecting to vsphere server that has just booted up I get the attached error. I am able to ssh to the box fine. Its a default install, I restart the sshd service.  I edited the sshd_config file to enablerootlogin. I am using the root username to connect to the server (not sure if this should make a difference) after about ten minutes I can then login. I thought the box was taking longer to boot but the fact its at the logon screen and I can still not access via VIclient I think not. Any ideas

Thanks

On some servers, it does take a while for the server to initialise all components to login with the vSphere Client.

You can check and test the following ports are required to login successfully.

80, 443 and 902 TCP.

The root account is the correct default account.

Yes it seems to just take a while, even though the console screen is at logon, viclient still takes another few mins to login
