Why did VMware disable the VMRC connection in vRA6.2? Just because of remote privilege escalation?

I found a basic architecture as the pic display,if the vRA Appliance also has a console peoxy,can we use VMRC connect to VM that not only in the director? I thought about this suddenly tonight,if any can give me an answer?:smileylaugh::smileylaugh:

vRA doesn't have a proxy, only vCD does (at this point). I expect that to change in the near future.

If you are using vCD with vRA, you can still use the Console Proxy from vCD to access your machines.

Here is the link for official announcement VMSA-2014-0013 . As Grant said "I expect that to change in the near future".

Good thing that VMRC is coming back.

Also, a proxy like feature is added (as in vCD) to vRA.

I believe it is scheduled for the end of january.

Sure hope soon.  Having a private cloud without console capability isn't ideal.

Well, I guess it's not the answer to your question (I think Grant gave you the right answer to that) but till it's fixed you can take a look at this: VMRC-Link Creation Package for vRO

Note that this is not using a proxy either but will directly connect your users to your vCenter. If this works in your environment that go ahead.
