Client is not authenticated to VMware Inventory Service.

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.

Probably another broken Windows vCenter Server!

Windoze Updates!
