VMware vSphere Web Client Whole Config to Run

i do not want to write something about both after find out every single bit from different docs and  web sites i want to summarize ….

To activate web client access you need to first install related add-on from vCenter iso , it will show you service ports 9443 pls next and finish the installation

Like me you can try to access directly and remotely via you client(desktop/notebook) and get this perfect warning

“vSphere Web Client administration tool cannot be accessed from a remote host.”

You should register it 🙂 , register what ? register for can use web client with vcenter or access vcenter via web client but don’t forget you should have Adobe Flash Flex to access the link “hope one day we will not need to install many add-on to access somewhere or something”

Go to your vSphere client installation folder ;
cd C:\Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure\vSphere Web Client\Scripts
Execute this ….
admin-cmd.bat register https://ip_of_where_you_installed-vSphere_Client-:9443/vsphere-client https://your-vcenter-ip-address administrator your-password

then it will be registered, maybe like me automatically you can put / after https://your-vcenter-ip-adderss but it will cause access problem warning

if you still want to register via GUI then install the Adobe Flash Flex and try to access this URI https://localhost:9443/admin-app

and time to manager remotely (I guess many Apple user waiting this and still i couldn’t imagine company like VMware whom more closer the linux world still do not support mysql/postgresql and luck the client to use windows until now)

Lets go https://ip-address:9443/vsphere-client

Still i couldn’t understand developers , there are 3 or 4 version of browser in the world are used mostly , IE,Firefox,Safari,Chrome but Web Client do not worl ohh ! sorry not functional %100 with Safari and Chrome which are fast browser ever on Mac but thanks God, thanks Firefox developers , its working that but I hate from IE, but good news in Win8 IE will be removable from system 😀
