Horizon 7.11 HTML5 and Security Servers

Is there no way to view Security Servers in the Horizon 7.11 or newer HTML5 Client? With the deprecation of the Flex/Flash client this seems like a huge gap. Yes, I know Security Servers are going away and we are replacing with UAG but wanted to see if we are missing something.

No, there are no plans to port Security Server management into the HTML5 console.  They can be managed via PowerCLI.  I wrote this script with a GUI using PowerCLI that has the same settings as the Flash console for Security Server management.  Hope this helps.

Nope, its gone. We are stuck in the same boat and are looking for a work around. We're planning on deploying UAG but can't properly disable the security server (removing IPSec rules) without having access to that management tab in the console. And I don't see any PowerCLI commands that can acheive this. 

I contacted support for assistance and was told "we are a break/fix organization and can't help plan your upgrade but contact us if you have issues during the upgrade itself." lol I was provided with the following KB: https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/78589?lang=en_US which just details the Flash end of life but offers an unsupported workaround to allow flash to run in a browser using Adobe's Enterprise Enablement feature. However, I have not been able to get this to work yet... 

I'll be following this post in case anyone finds a solution hoping I don't have to break my environment first trying to upgrade.

Here are details on how to manually remove the IPSec rules - exactly the same thing as preparing for upgrade or reinstallation in the Flex UI:

The script I posted earlier will allow you to manage and add security servers.

Thanks
