Hi All,

I would like to disable the SSL requirement for the vCenter 4.1 Web Access UI. Meaning, the URL should be accessible via https and http. Since the Web Access UI is protected by an ISA-Server (where we require SSL with our own certificate) I willing to accept the impacts on security. Has anyone succeeded in doing this?

Many thanks in advance!

HI,

If you really wont to do this then you can edit the server.xml configuration file.

C:\Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure\tomcat\conf\server.xml

Look for the below line and change to false. Restart the web services.
<Connector port="8443" protocol="HTTP/1.1" SSLEnabled="true"

Please make a backup of all files before you change them.

Hope this helps.
