VMware vSphere Web Client Tips – Multi vCenter Shared SSO


Jonathan Frappier Virtxpert

A great feature of the vSphere Web Client comes when you have two separate vCenter servers that share a common Single Sign-on  (SSO) server.  In this scenario you can see all vCenter servers connected to the shared SSO server – logging into the vSphere Web Client for either vCenter (or having a single web server running the Web Client bits) you can see any/all vCenter servers using the shared SSO server.

As you can see in the screenshot below, I have VC1 and VC2, along with all of the resources you would expect to have access to (including the awesome related objects tab) but I only have to log into one client!
