After many Years of serving all vSphere users, VMware announced that vSphere Client (called, fat client, C#) will be not supported with the release of vSphere 6.5 and never Goodbye vSphere Client for Windows (C#) – Hello HTML5. In Today post vSphere Client (HTML5) overview, I would like to walk you through the installation of HTML 5 client.
In my previous post vCenter Server 6.* Upgrade I described process of upgrading vCenter Server 6.*. Right after upgrade I noticed that I can’t connect to vCenter Server using vSphere Web Client. It was a bit odd behaviour but I wanted to fix it.
This blog post is intended for my future use in post. It will shorten future post because I will just refer to this installation guide.
Besides, that it will be used in future I think it might be useful for people who never deployed anything using OVF or OVA files.
Today we will configure iSCSI storage using vSphere Web Client. Have you ever tried it? If no then do it. VMware says that old “fat” C# client will be depreciated. Right now some new features can be configured only via it, so better to learn it now when you still have time to adopt to it than later. More info about vSphere Web Client of course on VMware website http://blogs.vmware.com/vsphere/files/2012/11/vSphere-client-comparison.pdf
