I tried to install the VI client on my test network and this happened;
vSphere Client requires Windows XP SP2 or later. vSphere Client cannot be installed on a Domain Controller.
Turns out its quite easy to bypass, install the VI client from command line with a switch on the end, like so;
The install will now complete without error. I thought that it might be a cunning ploy to get me to use the new web client instead, so out of interest I tried that, and got the following error;
vSphere Web Client requires Windows Server 2008 or later. vSphere Web Client cannot be installed on a Domain Controller.
Fair enough! So I tried the same switch on that, and guess what? That works as well.
