Description Waldirio M Pinheiro 2018-04-13 08:07:28 UTC
Description of problem:
When configuring everything to access the VM console via Satellite webUI we are unable to connect. After do a deep research I got the information that this kind of connection *VNC* should be deprecated from the vSphere side, now keeping just the VMRC support.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
6.3.x and 6.2.x, the main issue here is the vSphere version, if product/hypervisor is running 6.5 then will fail.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure everything according [1] and [2]
2. Test the connection

[1]. https://access.redhat.com/solutions/3410621
[2]. https://theforeman.org/manuals/1.11/index.html#7.1NoVNC

Actual results:
Error on the Satellite webUI

Expected results:
VM Console

Hi all

Checking for the issue when accessing VM console on machines running over ESX 6.5 *and testing locally in our labs* I got some links according below

- Here we can see the issue for some browsers but nothing related to vCenter

- Here one great explanation about what should be done to configure the environment and at the end one great comment from Lukas about vSphere *Adrian, we don't support that on VMWare, only libvirt and RHEV/oVirt for now.*

- The specific issue when using vSphere 6.5

- Support VMWare VMRC Console *here the upstream code updated*

Moving this bug to POST for triage into Satellite 6 since the upstream issue http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/17727 has been resolved.

Build:Satellite 6.4.0 snap20

Satellite now has a option to select VMRC display type when creating a Vmware Compute resource.

Install VMRC Console on machine.
Navigate to the host and click Console.
Click Launch VMRC console.

PFA to see the VMRC launched Console
