To use the vCloud Hybrid Service plug-in in vSphere Web Client, you need to install the plug-in and register your vCloud Hybrid Service account with it. You also need to download the SSL certificate of the vCloud Hybrid Service portal and import it into the trusted keystore of the vSphere Web Client.

You must set up networking for your environment in such a way that the vCenter Server underlying the vSphere Web Client can connect to the Internet. This is required for installing, upgrading, or using the plug-in.

You can install the vCloud Hybrid Service plug-in in vSphere Web Client 5.5 or in vSphere Web Client 5.5 Update 1.

In vSphere Web Client 5.5, you can only install version 1.0.0 of the plug-in. This version is available on My VMware for you to download. See Installing the vCloud Hybrid Service Plug-in in vSphere Web Client 5.5 for information.

In vSphere Web Client 5.5 Update 1 or later, you can install version 1.0.1 and later versions of the plug-in. See Installing the vCloud Hybrid Service Plug-in in vSphere Web Client 5.5 Update 1 or Later for information.

Note

Except for the differences in the installation and upgrade process, vCloud Hybrid Service plug-in 1.0.1 has the same functionality as vCloud Hybrid Service plug-in 1.0.0.
