Hello Experts,

Can someone please take a look at the image and let me know why the console for any of my VMs won't connect?

Cheers

One possible reason I've run across lately - older versions of the vSphere client software are not fully compatible with Windows 8. Most of the basic functions will work fine, but I know for a fact that the remote console does not work. If you're running the vSphere client on a Windows 8 workstation, you need ESXi/vSphere client version 5.5 or above, IIRC. There are of course other reasons, here's one:

If those don't fit your problem, maybe additional details would be helpful in troubleshooting.
