VMRC in vCAC or vRA

Is there any way that I can use VMRC to connect VM in vCAC or vRA portal?

As of 6.2, no. If you want to continue using VMRC and you're aware of the security implications then you can stay on 6.1.

The security issue Grant referred to is described here: VMSA-2014-0013.

There will be an update to vRA later in Q1 to restore VMRC connectivity to vSphere machines.

I'm also working on a POC for delivering student lab environments.  Is there a workaround available until the offical patch?  I really don't want to provision separate resources pools for each student and grant them permissions so that they can use vcenter to access the VM consoles.

cmbwml@rit.eduSorry cmbwml@rit.eduSince its a security issue there is no workaround at this point of time.

In theory you could deploy an old 6.1 build without the security patch and use VMRC.

Otherwise, enable RDP/SSH.
