VSICM55 - Slide 04-34 - Accessing vSphere Web Client



Room for improvement:

The description of the URL to use for accessing the vSphere Web Client is rather vague. Slide notes state:

Use the browser to navigate to the URL in the example by using the server’s or client’s FQDN or IP address.
Correct:

Personally, I would rather reword the phrase as follows:

Use the browser to navigate to the URL in the example by using vCenter Server or vSphere Web Client FQDN or IP address.

The former case - vCenter Server FQDN or IP address - is to be used when a Windows-based vCenter Server has been deployed using the Simple Install setup type or you are using the vCenter Server Appliance. In this case, vCenter Server and vSphere Web Client FQDNs or IP addresses are the same as they run on the same system.

The latter - vSphere Web Client FQDN or IP address - is to be used when the vSphere Web Client server has been installed on a separate Windows system by leveraging the vSphere Custom Install procedure.
