Hello Experts

I have a Microsoft 2003 server 32bit
I updated the ESXi5.1 server.
When i try to connect the Vmware client i get an error:

An unknown connection error occurred. (The Client could not send a complete request to the server. (The underlying connection was closed: An unexpected error occurred on a send.

I have googled and found out that there is no sulution, except going to a higher OS version.

Is there no sulution, or is there some workaround i have not found?

I am not sure about a solution but I can tell yo that I am currently running just about every version of the Server 2003 on ESXI 5.1 and 5.5 with no problems.
I am speculating but maybe because I always install the ESXI from a scratch and attach the VMs only after the server is up and running.
