I am new to vmware vsphere, and I am setting it up in a test environment to learn more about it.
I have vmware vsphere version 5 installed on a test machine, I downloaded and installed view client, because i thought that is what i need to connect and configure the vsphere server. but when i try to connect using view client i get this error

"Vmware View Client
the view connection server connection failed. an HTTP error occured: status code = 400"

I googled this and found something about needing to install a view connection server. So I have been looking for this software on Vmware's sight, but can't seem to find it. Anybody know where i could find this?
Also, I saw something about installing this connection server thing, and got the impression that it doesn't get installed on the vsphere server. any ideas on where this connection server thing is installed?

you use the vSphere Client to connect to the vSphere ESXi server.

point your browser at the ESXi server http://ip address of ESXi server and download the client and install.

Click and run, and use that IP address of the server to conne t to ESXi, using root and your password.

the View Client is used to access VMware View (VDI - virtual desktops, similar to Citrix XenApp,
Thin Client), this is not what you want to manage a vSphere ESXi 5.0 server.

also checkout this URL for details, of how to manage and setup your ESXi 5.0 server.
