    vSphere/vCenter client and the web services

    ChaitanyaS Novice

       

      Hi,

       

       

      Does vSphere client (or vCenter client earlier) invoke the vSphere  web services internally to perform any operations on the ESX server?

       

       

      I'm novice to VMware developemnt.

       

       

      What i understand is vSphere or vCenter client is a management console. An actioan/operations like creating VM or cloning images actually happen on the ESX servers or hosts. Web services are hosted on the ESX servers. When we perform an action through vSphere/vCenter client (e.g. create virtual machine), internally it would be invoking appropriate API provided by the web service SDKto do the needful.

       

       

      Is my understanding correct?
