Hey guys.

On 5.5. Encountering the following when connecting to the Web Client. All users affected.

Have tried restarting the IS service, re-registering vC with the IS and resetting the IS DB. Still no change.

I did note a lot of the following in the logs:

Authenticate-Challenge Token header missing

Could be related to a certs issue? Any ideas?

Thanks!

Is this a new installation?

If you logon with old legacy vSphere Client?

Does it work?

Hey Andrew. Installed over a year ago as an upgrade.
Works fine with the Desktop Client but all users affected with the Web Client.
Thanks, as always, for any pointers.

I would check all services running and event logs and SSO logs
