Use the vSphere Web Client Administration Tool to register or unregister vCenter Server 5.0 systems with an instance of the vSphere Web Client.

The vSphere Web Client is a Web application that can reside either on the same system as vCenter Server or a separate system. Before you can connect to a vCenter Server 5.0 system with the vSphere Web Client, you must register the vCenter Server 5.0 system with the vSphere Web Client. Unregister a vCenter Server system when you no longer want users to be able to access that vCenter Server system using a particular instance of the vSphere Web Client.

You do not need to register vCenter Server 5.1 systems that use the same vCenter Single Sign On server as the vSphere Web Client. The vSphere Web Client can locate such vCenter Server systems by using VMware Lookup Service.

vSphere Web Client does not support vCenter Sever systems earlier than 5.0.

Note

If vCenter Server uses IPv6, you must specify the server address using the fully-qualified domain name.
