Possible to view VMWare virtual sessions on VMware server?

Is it now possible within the latest version of VMware to view and interact with a virtual operating system that is running on the actual VMware server's monitor (without having to use the VMware vSphere client running on a seperate computer)?

It could always be done with a Group Policy mod..... but 7.2 has a new Help Desk tool...

So its actually possible to both view and interact with the virtual operating system that is running within VMware directly on the VMware server (just like you can do with sessions running on Windows servers)?

Or are you still stuck with viewing the same old VMware console describing what is running but not being able to directly view and interact with this session?

You can issue a Microsoft Remote Assistance request, so hence "shadow" the OS.
