    Hi all,

    I have VMware workstation and I am running windows server 2008 R2 as VM on it. I’ve installed Vsphere (ESX4) as VM also. I am not able to connect to ESX server via VI Client from windows machine. This is what I’ve checked so far –

    · ESX server has been assigned a static IP address
    · ESX (A) record is seen in DNS
    · I am able to ping the ESX machine
    · I am able to open the open initial web page for ESX server in a browser
    · I am able to login to the ESX server from the ESX server console itself
    · Both the machines are running on vmnet 0, I’ve tried them on host only // bridging but no go

    When I try connecting to the ESX via VI client, this is the error message that I get. Snap shot attached. Please guide on what I can try to get this fixed.

    Thank you in advance,

    Also I have edited the configuration vmx file and added the command monitor_control.restrict_backdoor = TRUE
