    Anyone been able to resolved the connection issues?

    5.5, once every couple months vsphere client wouldnt connect. I usually would connect using the web client and then vpshere would connect immediately. Since upgrading to 6.0u2, vsphere worked for the first month and then it started working 50% of the time. Now it doesnt work at all. Ive been using the web client for the last month (what a pain).

    I can only assume it was some sort of windows update...I've tried all the suggested solutions I could google. I am on windows 7, tried the registry connection timer.

    I am out of ideas.

    Does port 80 work on the management IP for the ESXi host?
    Have you tried turning on ssh and looking at the local logs when this happens?

    I know this is a far stupider comment than xnoodle's but you don't have an IP address conflict or something like that? Two DNS A records? I always go down the complicated fix route before finding out it was something simple all along
