http://kb.vmware.com/kb/2032890 – This video discusses and demonstrates installing the vSphere 5.1 Web Client.

The vSphere Web Client runs in your browser and allows you connect to a vCenter Server system to manage your vSphere environment.

Before installing or upgrading the vSphere Web Client, ensure that:

– The vCenter Single Sign On is installed and the Inventory Service and vCenter Server are upgraded or installed with version 5.1.

– Your system meets the software requirements for the vSphere Web Client. For more information, see http://kb.vmware.com/kb/2005083.

– The vSphere Web Client and vCenter Server are registered to the same vCenter Single Sign On server. This ensures that the vSphere Web Client can access the vCenter Server inventory.

– All browsers are closed.

– You log in as a member of the Administrators group on the host machine, with a user name that does not contain any non-ASCII characters.
