Brand new installation of ESXi 5.1 and all seems to be good except one thing, if I stay logged into Vsphere to long I cannot view much of anything such summary, console, or even data stores. If I close it out and re-log back in everything is normal again.

This happens sometimes when host machine(on which vSphere client installed) is loaded heavily or due to network issues.

I am talking about the physical machine from which you're accessing the ESXi host using vSphere client.

Oh.. well it's possible but I don't forsee that being an issue for me at least not right at the moment. My desktop has more hardware power than the server ESXi runs and I'm not doing anything with it currently just custom building VMs at the moment. As long as I keep doing something everything seems to be normal just when I walk away for about ten mins it does this. Like a time out issue..

Check your firewalls?

ports 902, 443 and 80 tcp

there is no NAT involved, there is a timeout value you can adjust, for slow WAN links etc

how long is too long?

is the local LAN?

also check if applicable

Not sure I know what you are asking about LAN. The time for things to show up varies several seconds sometimes not at all. I turned off the firewall on my local computer to see if this had any help but i dont see any difference so im not sure if that link is of help. This is what I see for example http://i.imgur.com/HXUgftt.jpg Resources will load after say 30-40 seconds. Datastore and network will load after I leave it open for a couple mins, guess I didn't wait long enough. Sometimes the consoles don't load though.. The server is connected with a dedicated provider in AZ I am in StLouis if that has anything to do with it. I dont expect sections of vpshere to load instantly but it shouldn't take that long yea?

So this is a WAN connection to the server?

okay, it's the delay of the WAN, or firewalls/NAT.
