After discussion with Vojtech, this seems to be a PatternFly related CSS issue. Switching whiteboard to UX.

As discussed, the "Console Client Resources" page seems to use the same styling as SSO interactive login page  so I'd say it's not an issue of PatternFly CSS itself but our usage of it.

"Console Client Resources" page screenshot.
The bug is still persist. See attached screenshot. User cannot scroll "Console Client Resources" page.
"Console Client Resources" page holds essential tools that are quite important for client side. Users are not able to download them due this bug.
The welcome page has the same issue as well, its just not as noticeable due to the narrow nature of the links.
The example patternfly login page  actually has the exact same issue. If you make that one smaller you will notice no scroll bar will appear either. The problem is the absolute position in combination with the 'bottom: 13%' forcing the 'darker' area to be positioned 13% above the bottom.
The solution would be not the use the darker area pattern like we do in all the pages. That would be a UX issue to decide on how to solve this. We could make it not use the darker area and be a simple container instead of a 'login-pf container'
Verified in rhevm-18.104.22.168-0.1.el7ev.noarch (build 4.0.0-17).
Console Client Resources page now offers scrollbars
in case the content does not fit the browser window.
