this host is currently being managed by the vcenter server with ip address x.x.x.x

esxi 5.5
vcenter server 5.5

Upon initial launch of the vsphere5.5 client (after logging on), I receive the message:

"This host is currently being managed by the vCenter Server with IP address X.X.X.X. Changes made to this host during this session may now be reflected in vSphere Client sessions currently viewing the vCenter Server."

I am hosting a vcenter server so this is not the issue. my actual question is, is it possible to suppress this notification?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Looks like you're logging in directly to the host and not vCenter. If you log in to vCenter this message does not show up, it's just a reminder that it's not a standalone ESXi host

I understand that. There are occasions where I use the vsphere client in lieu of vsphere web client for certain configuration changes. All I am curious about is if the default dialogue can be suppressed.

There is no way to suppress this message. If it were possible it would be only at the hands of VMware development at the code level.
