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.

Hi! I'd like to know if this is (or will be) compatible with vCenter 7.0, thank you!

There is little point considering that these already have a full H5 client now. It would probaby be better to look at the beta program

Deployed a brand new one. booted up, connected to my SSO, and nothing. days the client is running, but no matter what, nothing comes up when I hit https://<IP Address>/ui/ tried to stop start, tried to reboot, just nothing at all. Just times out. What am i missing?

I had to do it all from the CLI, the web interface was just not getting things setup and working. SSH in and then followed the directions and that got it mostly working. Now I getthis when trying to log in. [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 - Failed to connect to VMware Lookup Service

HI jgdy,
It should work. Check the documentation.
If you have your old H5 fling appliance and if it was version 4+ you can directly copy the configuration files from it.
Copy the /etc/vmware/vsphere-ui/webclient.properties, /etc/vmware/vsphere-ui/store.jks and /etc/vmware/vsphere-ui/config/ds.properties to the same folders on the new appliance.
Make sure they are owned by the user vsphere-ui and have 770 permissions.

Just a quick tip for your current configuration files. Can you check if they had Windows EOF?
$> hexdump -c /etc/vmware/vsphere-ui/webclient.properties
$> hexdump -c /etc/vmware/vsphere-ui/config/ds.properties
If you see in any of the dumps \r\n then you should remove all the \r from the file.
To remove the \r you can use the 'tr' command.
cat webclient.properties | tr -d '\r' > webclient.properties

Best regards,
