vSphere 6.0: vSphere Client (Part-4)

In vSphere 6.0, there are two interfaces vSphere Web Client and vSphere Client are used to access the virtual environment.   If you have missed last posts, you can find them here.

  1. Introduction to vSphere 6.0
  2. Introduction to Virtual Infrastructure
  3. vSphere Lab Setup

 vSphere Web Client is a browser-based, fully extensible, platform-independent user interface used to access your data center environment. Web Client is based on Adobe Flex. All necessary workings with vSphere, ESXi, and VMware vCenter Server (ESxi and vCenter server will be discussed in details in upcoming posts) are possible with the vSphere Web Client.

vSphere Client is a legacy user interface for vSphere and can be used to perform a subset of the vSphere Web Client functionality. If you need to manage ESXi host directly (for example, if the vCenter Server is currently unavailable), the vSphere Client may be used. vSphere Client feature has been removed in latest version of vSphere 6.5.

Installing vSphere Client

The vSphere Client is used to connect remotely to ESXi hosts and vCenter Server systems from a Windows system. Among many other features, vSphere Client provides console access to virtual machines.

For installation of vSphere Client, VMware vCenter Server installer wizard is used on supported version of Windows OS, and for installing it standard procedure of installation will be adopted.

vSphere Client Interface

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my
    newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with
    something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything.

    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your
    new updates.
