However when you Connect via VMM 2012 Console and you received an error message

" Unable to download VNCControl.msi from (your Xenserver name)”

and unable to Connect via Console. Now here is the resolution to solve this issue.

3. Install VNCControl.msi

4. Try Connect via Console from VMM 2012 Console. Xen Viewer will open the VM which running in XenServer.
