Does any one know if we can limit user access to the vCenter web client only, and deny access to vCenter via the vCenter client, so only specific admins can use the desktop client.
this for version 5.1 and 5.5
Welcome to the community,
its only possible to block C# client access for all users through modification of some specific vCenter file see this thread below:
<Despite its not much practical and reasonable>
if you want to restrict C# client to just some admins I can realize that if you have two linked vCenter servers.
Simply modify one vCenter with above settings ... and leave the second intact just put second VC behind ACL and through it control users access...
All at the cost of inaccessibility of one vCenter server for some group of admins.
