    ESXi completely unusable:  web client ==> Cannot read property 'value' of undefined

    ajnouri Lurker

      Already encountered this error with a fresh installation of the latest ESXi

      installed ESXi embedded host client as recommended in some posts here in the forum. Worked normally for a while (a couple of hours).

       

      Now, again the error reappeared, when trying to add new virtual adapter to a VM:

      ESXi fresh installation on VMware workstation 12

       

      Tryed to reinstall ESXi embedded host client without success:

       

      $ ssh root@192.168.0.151 esxcli software vib install -v /tmp/esxui-signed-7119706.vib

      By the way, I had to reenable SSH and ESXi-shell a second time to reinstall ESXi embedded host client , shoudn't they be enabled at boot?

      Any idea how to solve this? I'm stuck and cannot do any thing in ESXi.
