Clients on an XP/ WIndows 7 workstation

Jump to solution

Hello,

I have a current envioment that is running a ESX3.0 Hosts.

I am runnig the "virtual infrastructure client" on my system and all is well.

I am wokring on a seocnd setup that is going to be a ESXi 4.1 Hosts.

Can I just install the vSphere client on the same system and have both clients run together?  Is this recommend?

I will be managing the 3.0 hosts for a while longer as we setup and configure the new systems for the ESX 4.1

Any thoughts on that would be great.

Yes, that's actually how this is usually done. VMware creates separate directories for the different clients. When you start the client the launcher determines which client to use for the host you connect to.
