vSphere Client and Domain Controller

Recently in my new virtual lab I tried to install vSphere Client 5.5 on a MS Server 2012R2 Domain Controller.  To my dismay I got the following message:

"vSphere 5.5 Client cannot be installed on a domain controller"

I immediately hit Google to find a resolution.  It took about 20-30 minutes before I came across Sean LaBrie's blog "The Day to Day Findings of an IT Engineer"

In his post back on April 15, 2014 "Running into this error?" he had the same issue.

To resolve the issue you must run the installer with following switch: /VSKIP_OS_CHECKS="1"

So if you had saved the installer to your C:\ drive the command would look like this in RUN:

C:\VMware-viclient-all-5.5.x-xxxxxxx.exe /VSKIP_OS_CHECKS="1"

Once I ran the installation like this it went off without an issue.  Wanted to repost Sean's fix to help other find it quicker.
