I wanted to post a quick blurb in regards to a demo we just had from the Avaya Team. We were invited to demo the AvayaLive Engage interactive environment and we were really impressed with what we saw. For those who are unfamiliar, AvayaLive Engage is a web based interactive environment. Their marketing team would probably scoff at my use of the word "game" because its intentions are strictly work and collaboration, but the whole realm is designed using the Unreal Engine.

Unable to connect to the remote server? You'll get this error even if you are using vSphere local to your vCenter.
