Launch Virtual Machine Console:Error

If you have a problem opening a remote console on a VM running on ESX hosts at a remote site try this fix....

The Doc ID at is 749640
The current working URL is: found here.

Even if you are not NATing between the sites, try it anyway. It worked for me.
Short version:
Log on to the ESX Server host's service console as root.

Edit /etc/vmware/config. Add the following line:

vmauthd.server.alwaysProxy = "TRUE"

Issue the following command to restart xinetd:

service xinetd restart
