How to use the Virtual Infrastructure Client to connect to VMware Server 2.0

fist of all, if you like the Web interface of VMware Virtual Server so do not read the rest of the article.

I like the windows native interfaces to manage anything

so the native interface in VMware is called Virtual Infrstructure Client you will find it under Driveletter:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Server\hostd\docroot\client there is VMware-viclient.exe you can install it normally
