vSphere HTML5 Web Client v1.2

April 20, 2016 0 By Allan Kjaer

WOW, VMware is really fast at updating there vSphere HTML5 Web Client.

New Features

  • Browse files in a Datastore ([Datastore] -> Manage -> Files)
  • Download a file from a Datastore
  • URL redirects: your old bookmarked URLs should now work, simplifying adoption of h5client. Examples:
    • https://[h5client ip or domain name]/vsphere-client
    • https://[h5client ip or domain name]:9443/vsphere-client
    • https://[ip or domain name]:9443/ui 
  • This requires running the "firewall.sh" script, which is step 5 in the updated fling Instructions.
  • Should now automatically redirect to the h5client standard:

Remove a CD/DVD drive/Network adapter/Hard disk from a new or existing VM


  • Add devices to a VM from a single menu
