vCenter 5.5 Verify Host SSL Cert Gray Out

The cluster the host is a  member of has DRS and HA disabled...

Is it the same issue with both web client and vSphere client?
AFAIK, the SSO closely depends on SSL verification. IT will not allow you to uncheck it.
But do try in both clients and let me know what happens.

I mainly use the web client but will try this with the Fat Client and let you know the results. Also are you stating since SSO requires SSL there is no way to disable SSL host checking..

Yes. Because in vSphere client the SSL settings have been removed.
So it means that it can't be disabled.
