Unable to logon to NFC Server

Hey guys,

We are running vmware esx 4.1, and i am implementing Veeam for backups. To test access, they had me download a VMX from the datastore and it failed with a "Unable to logon to NFC Server" error message.

Can you tell me whats wrong here?

So...

what are you entering IP Address, FQDN, Hostname ?

Did you check your firewall, on your PC, and disable it.

Have you tried from another PC?

Have you tried the Web Client ?

Check, you can resolve the FQDN, hostname, and IP Address of the Host Server.

how are you connecting by IP, Hostname of FQDN ?

Turn off your firewall.
