Remote Console plugin is not properly installed.

It doesn’t matter how many times I have this issue I kept forgetting how to fix it first time round.  The issue relates to launching a console via the vCenter Web Client.

If you’re using IE10 or WIndows 8 you’ll most likely receive this error the first time you try to launch a console.


The fix is very simple.  In Internet Explorer.  Navigate to Tool > Compatibility View Settings.  Add the site of your vCenter and reload the page.

The next time you connect to vCenter you’ll notice, and this is a technical explanation, a weird blue page thing that looks ripped in half in the URL bar.  This now means that you are view the site in IE Compatibility Mode.


Try launching a console again for a VM and this time it should work fine.
