  1. very useful info, thank you.

    Hopefully VMware will see this post and recognize how time consuming it is to trace a simple user login to an originating IP address. That kind of thing should not be difficult, I think its ridiculous!

    Come on VMware make your logging better, think security!

  2. @Sherwyn,

    When I use a less privileged account, I just get a blank page. Are you using an admin account or a custom one? If you’re still having issues, it might be your connection to your vSphere environment. This will either work or not work

  5. Very helpful in fixing one of my customer issue! There was a session running for a VMware VI Client/4.0.0, this sessions kept respawning and I had to uninstall a vSphere client 4.x clients.

Thanks for the comment!
