What version of the host client are you using? If it's stand-alone ESXi, it would be best to update the host client via the latest fling available here. You can use the Update functionality built into the client and point it at the published latest VIB for even easier updating: http://download3.vmware.com/software/vmw-tools/esxui/esxui-signed-latest.vib
Can you post vmkernel.log from your host and provide timestamp when you got the error?
Can you also describe a bit more abour what storage you use and how it's connected to your host?
I'm using the webui as my older Vsphere client from a 5.0 server will NOT connect.
I'm not following your question if my answer doesn't make sense?
Update the host client using the process I mentioned and try your operation again.
ok, can you point me how to update my host? I'm reading the link, but it doesn't tell me how to perform the update?
Applied the update and tried again, same error (pasted below)
This is a 3TB SATA drive, nothing complicated imho

The latest version is 1.23. Click on About and make sure it reports that version.
its still showing 1.21.0
I'm getting this from Help, about, Client Version
Its like the update isn't taking??
Use the offline package instead, upload to the host, and upgrade that way.
i put it on my boot datastore, but how do I point the ui to that directory? it wants a http or https link, not a path?
I can't see how this matters, but i executed the command from a ssh session versus on the host itself and got this error
esxcli software v
ib update esxui-signed-6360286.vib

nevermind, worked this time
