vSphereClient 5.5 strange problem

Hello folks,

a problem which irritates me since long time. Working with vSphereClient 5.5 and ESX Standalone host.
If you right click on a virtual machine and select Open Console - you can have the virtual machine opened in standalone window. But if you switch from vSphereClient to any other app and come back to it - the attempts to maximize the console window will fail. It is minimized in task bar and the only way to get it open - close the window of Console completely and again right click on vm - open console.
Is there any workaround for this other than using web interface?

It's a bug, and specific to the vSphere Client, we often switch to RDP, (Remote Desktop Connection) if accessing a VM for long term working.

I was hoping that some fix or workaround could exist. So Vmware is aware of this problem and instead of resolving it - a slow web interface was suggested, right?

Workaround - use RDP (RDC)

You will find, that in v6.0, you can no longer use the C# interface anymore to manage vCenter Server! only ESXi direct hosts!

This issue has been with the C# client, for many years.

Web Interface only works with vCenter Server, not the directly with a standalone host. I'm not aware of any newer development being done with the C# interface.

BIG Improvements have been made with the Web Client interface to make it faster in v6.0!

I'm afraid open and close, is what you will have to do.....Sometimes you will notice if you have lots of consoles open, it's impossible to get back to them, and you have to close them, if you have many stacked!
