WebClient 5.5: displaying wrong information?

For example:

1. It says 'VMWare Tools out of date on this virtual machine' but above, under VMWare Tools it says: 'running, version 9921 (current)?

2. It claims the guest OS is Windows 2000 while it's Windows 2003 ...

Any ideas why?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Okay and what about vSphare client ? issue is with only Webclient or both ?

The VMWare Tools options are all greyed out ... and all the VMs.

The vSphere Client displays the correct information, unlike the WebClient. The vSphere Client also offers the VMWare Tools options.
