My vsphere web client all of a sudden no longer works with chrome. I Have the URL white listed in the chrome settings under flash and I have the latest version of Flash installed. Trying to access my vcenter but can't.

I think there is a known compatibility issue with chrome on this, probably because chrome blocks the flash

what version of VCenter are you running?  can you run the html5 version?

what error do you receive?  does it just time out or is it an immediate denial?  have you enabled flash on your vcenter?  recently there was an announcement about flash displayed on chrome that asked if you wanted to disable flash/.  did you click ok on that by chance?

If the issue you are experiencing because the Flash Plugin is not loading ? This is normal and has been for quite some time, because the world has considered Flash to be a security issue!

Just re-enable flash.

when vsphere client says it requires flash, click on the 'get adobe flash player' logo
chrome will prompt you to allow flash to run
assuming your flash settings are set to 'ask first' and not block (settings -> advanced -> site settings -> flash)

Does not make a difference where I access this from. Get the same error.

so am I correct when I say you get the above error whenever you try and access the login page or is it after you login?  if it is before you login, it looks like a vca corruption and it may take a redeploy of the VCA.  if it is after, I still think it could be a VCA corruption as those pages are pretty static until you actually get logged in and it redirects you to the actually server farm info.  even the farm info is pretty static with the frames being populated by the esx servers and such.

my recommendation would be to redeploy the VCenter appliance.
