I have upgraded my Windows 7 to Windows 8 (Consumer Preview). The vSphere Client (5.0.0) seems to work, but I get an error when I try to open the console screen on a VM (like in right click the VM and choose Open Console). The error message is:
The VMRC console disconnected...attempting to reconnect.
I have tried to reinstall the vSphere Client (I had to run the setup file in Windows 7 compatibility mode), and I have tried to run as administrator and in compatibility mode, but no luck.
Does anyone have a clue?
Might be below problem
If you have a web cam in the guest computer that runs the cSphere client then
--> kill the proces called "fixCamera.exe".
--> stop the host server
--> close the vSphere client.
--> open it again and try again
I have te same problem in windows 8 and vsphere client 5 (with vsphere client 4.1 works fine), check de firewall configuration maybe it is blocking the connection between vcenter and vsphere client.
It works for me now. I have Windows 8 build 9200, vSphere client 5.1.0 build 786111 and vCenter server 5.1.0 build 880146.
It was not enough to upgrade the client, you must also upgrade the vCenter server. I have not upgraded the ESXi-hosts yet, so that was not necessary.
haven't you tried with compatibility mode ?
Follow this article (which works for me) :
