VMWare ESXi and WSX


Nice piece of kit in theory – allows for day-today VM management tasks (start/shutdown + screen share) via web interface without having to install vCenter.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t work against my ESXi 5.0 install. It logs in fine (type IP address ONLY, no port number), I can see my VMs … and as soon as I try to take any action, I get a message “Connection disconnected”. I haven’t been able to find any information on the issue.
