The more I use the vSphere Web Client, the more I am starting to embrace it and actually use it. In the past few months, as I encourage more customers to use it – multiple customers have come to me stating they are receiving error messages when using the web client. As you can see below, the error states that it can not load a resouce module from …../*.SWF.
What I found out was that the users were simply going to https://<VCHostname> amd then clicking on the “Log in to vSphere Web Client” link.
While this works in most situations, it does not add the port number, which is required for some plugins to work correctly.
As you can see below, simply by adding the port number, the plugin’s work with no issue.
So remember, when utilizing the web client, make sure to remember to always add the :9443 to the end of the address.
