Login with vSphere Client fails sometimes

I have installed vSphere (ESXi) 6.0 and I'm trying to login with vSphere Client 6.0

Sometimes it works and sometimes it does not. Currently it's failing again.

To login I perform the following steps:

1) Open vSphere Client

2) Copy & Paste username and password from keepass

However, despite errors with this login I can always login using the HP Remote Console that connects to the host system with the same user as used for the vSphere Client.

Furthermore I'm always login from the same Windows 7 laptop just to exclude any potential errors with the client computer.

The only thing that might change from one successful to the next failed login is the IP address I am connecting from but I this I have not tested.

I appreciate any help as this is a crucial error if I have to login due to some production erros but can't!

thanks

Sorry, but if you've read my problem in detail you should know the problems from the article do not apply.

With the hosting provider we've already found that it happens due to a passwort lockdown caused by a brute force attack... Smiley Sad
