Install the vSphere Client on a Windows system to connect to and manage single ESXi hosts.

To connect to and manage vCenter Server systems and the hosts connected to them, use the vSphere Web Client instead of the vSphere Client. Using the vSphere Web Client allows you to access a greater range of vSphere features and functionality than using the vSphere Client. For more information on installing the vSphere Web Client, see vSphere Installation and Setup.
