VMware VSphere 5.5 cert error crashes client
Posted on 2014-11-05
Hi, all! Currently have a VMware VSphere 5.5 installation with 3x ESX hosts. System is up and running fine at main office. Server is Windows Server 2008, and all clients attempted are Windows 7 Pro or Enterprise. Remote apps tried are Dameware, TSC, and ANX.
The problem arises in that when I try to log onto the VCenter remotely (different subnet, but on same routable network) I'm getting a certificate error that pops up on the client I've launched VSphere 5.5 client on. Once the cert error appears on-screen, I can't do anything with the app at all: can't click Install, Ignore, or Cancel. VSphere client effectively locks, and I have to use Task Manager to kill the process. If someone sits down a machine ON THE LOCAL NETWORK and runs VSphere, it works fine: cert error appears, but they can click Ignore and continue. When I connect to that network remotely (via a private MPLS network) using any of the above remote connection methods the VSphere client effectively crashes, won't accept any mouse clicks, and I need to end the task to clear it. Credentials used have no effect (domain admins or restricted access user).
Anyone have any suggestions? I need to be able to manage the VMware installation remotely.
