vSphere 5.1 Web Client - Drag and Drop

Hello,

Using the "fat" client it's possible to drag and drop a VM to a specific host. Doing so saves a lot of clicks as some wizard action is pre-filled.

Is there a similar funcionality in the flex web client or do I need to (slowly) follow all the wizard steps to achieve this?

Thanks,

Dan

Unfortunately it looks like the Web Client still needs some "fine tuning". Besides drag&drop, there are a couple of other things I'm missing.

"fat" being vSphere Windows Client, not the file system, or were you joking 🙂

Hi André,

I've spotted some rough edges as well... but on the whole I find it not bad.

I must admit I've ignored the web client with 5.0, but with VMware forcing us using it (new features only present  in web client + win client being dropped in future version) I spent some time trying it... but it's not there yet. I'm sure it will get there though.

One thing that really bugs me is that I constantly keep searching for the web client among the many tabs in my browser.

I'm really most interested in knowing if 'emma234' was joking about the FAT comment or not. Either way, it's pretty darn funny :smileygrin:
