Please provide your feedback in this short Flings' survey.
A fully supported version of the HTML5 client is released with vSphere 6.5, and the official name will be vSphere Client.  We won't be renaming this Fling, but may start saying things like 'vSphere Client Fling' in addition to the other terms we've used before. Fling features are not guaranteed to be implemented into the product.

I haven't tried it yet, but I would love to see the ability to open views in other browser tabs or additional windows.

Apr 01, 2016

We're taking a look at that.

But with the much faster load time, and lower memory consumption, we're wondering if multiple tabs of the full H5Client would be sufficient? You can also minimize the side panes by double clicking the divider, to almost get it.

Actually, I want it so that I can spread the interface out across multiple screens and not have to drag it so that it does so in one frame.

Mar 31, 2016

I've followed the install and everything seemed to go ok. But I'm just getting a blank screen after it I authenticate to SSO. Anyone else run into this?

Mar 31, 2016

Actually, I get a Submit button very briefly before the blank screen and if I hit it I get:

HTTP Status 400 - An error occurred while processing the authentication response from the vCenter Single Sign-On server. Details: HTTP error code: 400, status: BadResponse, sub status: No matching request found..

type Status report

message An error occurred while processing the authentication response from the vCenter Single Sign-On server. Details: HTTP error code: 400, status: BadResponse, sub status: No matching request found..

description The request sent by the client was syntactically incorrect.

Apache Tomcat/7.0.53

Have check the time on the VCSA appliance and Web Client Appliance and they match.

Mar 31, 2016

On the H5client appliance, can you run: "/etc/init.d/vsphere-client tail_log”

Jay, can you check the times on the vCenter and on the H5client appliance? The only similar error I've found were related to the time settings mismatching.

If that doesn't do it, please email me (my email is in one of the posts below, search for vmware.com) and let me know more about your setup (vCenter build number, embedded/external) and we can do more debugging over email.

Error when launching H5. We have External PSC w/ load balancer.

HTTP Status 400 - An error occurred while sending an authentication request to the vCenter Single Sign-On server - An error occurred when processing the metadata during vCenter Single Sign-On setup - java.net.UnknownHostException: shqpsc.na.sas.com.

type Status report

message An error occurred while sending an authentication request to the vCenter Single Sign-On server - An error occurred when processing the metadata during vCenter Single Sign-On setup - java.net.UnknownHostException:xxxxxx.xx.xxx..com.

description The request sent by the client was syntactically incorrect.

Apache Tomcat/7.0.53

Hi Dan,

That one definitely sounds like this: https://flings.vmware.com/vsphere-html5-web-client#comment-559992

But can you try something else for me?

On the H5client appliance:

1) edit "/etc/vmware/vsphere-client/vsphere-client/webclient.properties" by changing any domain name references to the VC IP address (probably only present in the "cm.url" entry)

For example: cm.url=https://mydomainname.com/cm/sdk/
Becomes: cm.url=https://xx.xx.xx.xx/cm/sdk/

2) restart the webserver by running command: /etc/init.d/vsphere-client restart

Added the IPTables no good

I do have an external PSC could that be an issue

Mar 31, 2016

Can you paste the errors you get when running the configure command?

Also make sure you're putting in your VC IP, not the PSC IP. We've definitely had people get it working with external PSC before.

Mar 31, 2016

I have checked everything
HTTP Status 400 - An error occurred while sending an authentication request to the vCenter Single Sign-On server - An error occurred when processing the metadata during vCenter Single Sign-On setup - null.

type Status report

message An error occurred while sending an authentication request to the vCenter Single Sign-On server - An error occurred when processing the metadata during vCenter Single Sign-On setup - null.

Can you run: ;“/etc/init.d/vsphere-client tail_log”?
