vmware vsphere client Auto Login

Hello Experts,

Can someone let me know if its possible to have the vSphere retain my login credentials without using Windows session credentials?

For example, can the vSphere client retain the ip address 192.168.1.1, username and password without me having to insert them each time I open the client?

Yes!

Please refer to the below article, though it is quite old!

Edit: Just tested, it works in Vsphere Client 5.1

Disclaimer: It is a risk to store the password in Plain text and not a Best practice

This can be done on the command line

Append the following parameters to VpxClient.exe in the Target line:

-s servername (can be an ESX or VirtualCenter hostname/IP)

-u username (root or Administrator, for example)

-p password (this is the sensitive part, you already know)
