using my VMware Infrastructure Client I'm not able to connect to VM's console.
The VI Client return the following error: "Error Connecting: Error connecting to authd on host myhost.mydomain. Do you want to try again?"
All other feature works fine.
If you're running the classic ESX 3.5 and not ESXi, try the restarting the management agent:
service mgmt-vmware restart
Certain times the hostd agent may hang or other processes that may cause some unexpected behavior. This command will not affect any running VM(s)

I may sound dumb but I just want to confirm -
you are connecting to your virtual center or ESX host using Vi Client and thats where you get an error while connecting to console for any VM's running on any host?
Is this ESX3.5 if recently been upgraded from ESX 3.0? then add vmauthd.server.alwaysProxy=TRUE in /etc/vmware/config
