Using VMware vSphere Client to connect to VMware Server

In Jan 2009 I created an article on How to use the Virtual Infrastructure Client to connect to VMware Server 2.0

Today, I hade another challenge where I want to use the latest client tool which is VMware vSphere Client to connect to an VMware Server it will give you the error below





"The required client support files cannot be retrieved from the server"
"The login process will now exit"
"Details: The server could not interpret the client's request. (404 not found)"

Solution was found in this link http://www.linux.com/community/blogs/accessing-vmware-server-2-with-vsphere-client-the-unsupported-way.html and simply download a rar file Here's a link expand the contents in the “Virtual Infrastructure Client” folder in Program files folder and rerun the tool it will work perfectly.

Note: This is not supported by VMware.

I tried the link you suggested and it didn't work for me too.

That worked nicely. Thanks so much. 2.5 folder must be in C:\Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure\Virtual Infrastructure Client\2.5 and login with windows credentials did not work, however login using the same windows credentials as a static l/p worked grand. You rock! Thanks!
