vCenter Server 5.5 Update 1c Out

A few days ago VMware released a minor update to vCenter to bring it up to vCenter Server 5.5 Update 1c. The update applies to both the Windows and vCenter Server appliance deployment models. If you are using vCloud Automation Center (vCAC), then you will want this update. Update 1c resolves issues around SSO and vCAC. Updates in this release include:

  • Attempts to perform vCloud Automation Center tenant administration operation fail with an error

    While attempting to log in to vCloud Automation Center, if you use a password that contains the colon (:) character, the login attempt fails.
  • Attempts to use the Windows Session Authentication feature might fail when you log in to vCloud Automation Center by using Windows Session Authentication on browsers such as Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox might fail due to an error in the VMware Client Integration Plug-in.
  • Windows Session Authentication login has failed as a result of an error caused by the VMware Client Integration Plugin
  • Attempts to log in to vCloud Automation Center fail if a custom UPN suffix is configured in the alias field for AD over LDAP
