VMWare vsphere client update


I've upgraded from ESXi 4.1 348481 to 502767 and now my vsphere client doesn't work. So the version on the ESX server is outdated I guess. Will I have to find another vsphere client every time I patch my system?

Also, due to web browser stigs, I'd like to browse the ESX host folders for the client using WinSCP. Hoping I can find another site with the same build. This way, I won't have to use https//esxserver

Thanks in advance, wish you all the best

You are correct, every time you patch an ESXi/ESX server, you may have to use a newer client.

In later versions of ESXi, the vSphere Client download has been REMOVED, and has been replaced with a http:// link to the VMware Website to download the client. This is because the installation package has been getting larger.

I guess I'll have to download from VMWare.com. Pain
