    Switching View mode on connected vSphere not ideal

      Hi,

       

      VMware Tech Preview July, connecting to a vSphere 5.1 box.

      The remote kvm works great, however there's a little snag when switching between windowed and full screen.

      For me "windowed mode" the screen resolution is 800x600, when I switch to full screen I expect the VM to switch to my full screen mode.

      In my case that's 1024x768. It's not doing that, it just blows up the 800x600 screen, making everything look smudgy.

       

      I can of course switch that in the VM by hand, but I'd prefer Fusion to handle this the way the remote console in windows works.

      If I connect with VMware Infrastructure Client then the remote console in windowed mode is also 800x600, but when switching to full screen, the screen resolution automatically switches to 1024x768.

       

      I am seeing this on the exact same VM, same session. Different behavior.

       

      Thanks!

          Never mind, it looks like that it was my fault as I likely must have had the console screen open in both VI client as well as in Fusion.

          As a result the remote console chose the lowest resolution.

          Upon trying to reproduce the console in Fusion _did_ switch to the higher resolution.
