VMWare Client Authentication

What can you do with the vmware client (vSphere Client):

Auto Authenticate to VirtualCenter

The vSphere client is (by default) installed in:

C:\Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure\Virtual Infrastructure Client\Launcher\VpxClient.exe

Since VirtualCenter 2.5.2 you can pass your Windows credentials automatically to the virtualcenter when you log on. To do so, add these switches to the executable:

-passthroughAuth -s <VirtualCenter hostname/ip-address>

Auto Authenticate with Different Credentials

In stead of using your own Windows credentials there are also possibilities to login with a different username and password. To do so, add these switches to the executable:

-s <VirtualCenter hostname/ip-address> -u <username> -p <password>
