Problems with the VMware vSphere Client

Jump to solution

Hallo

I have problems with the new VMware vSphere Client.

Before i did install the new client on my system i did have the old VMware inferstructure client 2.5 for managing my esxi.

I was then gonna test esx 4 on anther box, and did then install the vsphere client.

But!

When i try logon my old esxi 3.5 or the new esx 4 i get the following error from the vsphere client:

"Error parsing the server "192.168.2.2" "clients.xml" file.

Login will continue, contact your system administrator.

I then clik Ok and get this message:

The type initializer for 'VirtualInfrastructure.Utils.HttpWebRequestProxy' threw an exception.

I have tried to remove both the old client and the new, and then install the new, but still it dosent work.

I am running Windows 7 64 bit.

That is true I am one of many that is using 7 RTM. I would have hoped that there would have been a definitive fix for this and not workarounds.

Using a XP VM is a nice answer but it is not the right answer. Even the solution I provided is only a workaround... It works for me but it still is not a definitive fix.

For those who is still wondering, the new vSphere client does it without the need for any hack :). Enjoy the beat!!!!!

I hope this help some one, if it does please reward points.
