Description: Can't add VMware ESX server 3 as a client. This is when using a regular client installation on the ESX server, and not yet using the VMware plugin. Client will add to the left side of the Client management window, but it still has the key on the icon. Doing a 'Check Access' on the client 'Hourglasses' then gets, "Plugin died unexpectedly."
ESX server 3 now comes with a built in firewall on the host. The firewall must be disabled or it needs to be configured. For example, ports 20031-20061 would need to be opened on:
1. The EXS server console firewall
2. The NetVault server Configurator Firewall tab and
3. The NetVault Client Configurator Firewall tab on the ESX server.
All 3 must be configured to add the ESX server as a client.
