logging on to the ESX server from the VI Client logon screen takes quite long for me (approx. 1min).
Is there a way to speed up the logon process?
I have an ESX Server 3.0.1 and connect to it directly from the VI client. The two are connected with each other by a dedicated 100MBit switch.
By default, the client first tries to login using port 80, then if that does not work, it moves to port 902.
Try logging in to your vc server with port 902 appended to the server name :902
That should force it to use port 902 immediately and hasten your login.
