I have continous problems using vSphere client 5.1 agains an ESXi 5.1 free hypervisor. Every time that I can try to "Open console", same error appears:
"The VMRC Console has disconnected .. attempting to reconnect".
vSphere client 5.1 is installed under Windows 2008 R2 (I don't use Windows 8 or Windows 2012, like I see in some threads about this problems). I have tried to uninstall all Visual c++ redistributable packages and reinstall vsphere client ... but no go.
The problem is fixed now. Just download the latest version of the vSphere client VMware-viclient-all-5.0.0-913577.exe and install it. Reboot and the problem is fixed!
Thanks Sut, but not. This client is for vSpher 5.0 U2. I have installed and when connects to ESXi 5.1, updates the client to version 188.8.131.523 ... and problems presists ...
Would anyone else does this happen? Is there no solution?
