VMware VCenter Server 5.1 Update 1 - Server has a weak ephemeral Diffie-Hellman public key


When using Google Chrome,

I cannot open the vSPhere Web Client anymore with this error message:

Server has a weak ephemeral Diffie-Hellman public key

Hide details
This error can occur when connecting to a secure (HTTPS) server. It means that the server is trying to set up a secure connection but, due to a disastrous misconfiguration, the connection wouldn't be secure at all!

In this case the server needs to be fixed. Google Chrome won't use insecure connections in order to protect your privacy.

So what can I do to access the Web client ?
