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.

am i dense or can you not add components via the h5 web client to individual VMs (disk, network adapters, etc)?

Mar 29, 2016

not available yet. We will work on this and call out when we are ready. Do keep the feedback coming so that we can shape the future versions better.

Deploy From Template does not offer customization options... is this a known/deliberate omission, or is something broken?

Otherwise, so far, so good. Thanks!

Mar 29, 2016

This is known. We do not have this at this point of time. But we are working on this. DO you use this customization option often?

Mar 29, 2016

Absolutely.

If we have a template, how else are we supposed to set the hostname/networking of the new VM? And for a Windows VM, sysprep it?

We have auto-deploy scripts here in PowerCLI and Java that use customization specifications (named, within vCenter) so the knob for this definitely exists in the API.

Mar 29, 2016

Follow on questions, if you have the time.

1) Is it sufficient to only be able to apply existing customizations first? This can be delivered much faster

2) The desktop/C# client had 'in place' edit capabilities, whereas the Flash Web Client does not. Do you need this?

Mar 29, 2016

Got it. we will definitely put this into our list. We will let you know once we have an update on this. Thanks for the information. In the mean time please do send all these feedback (through feedback tool inside h5client, this community,twitter)

Mar 29, 2016

That seems awesome. Is it working with 5.5u3? thanks.

From the System Requirements it looks like only vSphere 6:

An existing VC6.0 installation (VCSA or Windows)

Mar 28, 2016

We're running the VCSA version 6.0.0 build3339084 and receive the error below after what appears to be a successful install. We've also confirmed that date/time for both vCenter on this webclient VM are nearly identical.

"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: .

Mar 28, 2016

I ran /etc/init.d/vsphere-client tail_log and see the following:

[2016-03-28T22:02:30.992Z] [ERROR] http-bio-9443-exec-5 70000035 100002 ###### c.v.vsphere.client.security.websso.WebssoLoginRequestHandler javax.servlet.ServletException: An error occurred when processing the metadata during vCenter Single Sign-On setup - java.net.UnknownHostException: ourvcenterdnsname.

Would it be possible to try reconfiguring using your VC IP address rather than did nand?

Mar 28, 2016

I've only run the setup command using the VC IP address, but the error message is resolving it to the DNS name for me.

Mar 28, 2016

Maybe the opposite problem then, that your certs orthe something only rrecognize dns name.

Can you try configuring with dns name?

Do you have an external PSC setup?

Mar 29, 2016

Adding my DNS Server to the /etc/resolv.conf file and then restarting the server /etc/init.d/vsphere-client restart got things working for me and I am using an external PSC.
Thanks
Fred

Mar 28, 2016

Ah ha, that was it you're right. I just had to add our dns server to /etc/resolv.conf, restart networking services, and then running the install with the FQDN rather than IP did the trick and we're off to explore the scary world of the web client. Appreciate the quick responses.

Mar 29, 2016

It worked fine with me. This solved the problem after trying many times for hours.
Thanks guys

Mar 28, 2016

Dns name, I meant. Autocorrect.......

Mar 28, 2016

Same thing happened to me. Give it a few minutes and refresh the browser. It should work.
