Verify the Deployment of the vSphere Integrated Containers Engine Plug-In
After you have installed the vSphere Web Client plug-in for vSphere Integrated Containers Engine, verify the deployment of the plug-in in the vSphere Web Client.
- You deployed a virtual container host (VCH).
- You installed the vSphere Web Client plug-in for vSphere Integrated Containers Engine.
- You logged out of the vSphere Web Client after deploying the plug-in, and logged back in.
- If you deployed the VCH to a vCenter Server 6.5 instance, use the Flash-based vSphere Web Client to view the vSphere Web Client plug-in for vSphere Integrated Containers Engine. vSphere Integrated Containers Engine does not currently provide a plug-in for the new HTML5 vSphere Client.
- In the vSphere Web Client Home page, select Hosts and Clusters.
- Expand the hierarchy of vCenter Server objects to navigate to the VCH vApp.
- Expand the VCH vApp and select the VCH endpoint VM.
- Click the Summary tab for the VCH endpoint VM and scroll down to the VCH portlet.
Information about the VCH appears in the VCH portlet in the Summary tab:
- The address of the Docker API endpoint for this VCH
- A link to the vic-admin portal for the VCH, from which you can obtain health information and download log bundles for the VCH.
What to Do Next
If the VCH portlet still does not appear in the Summary tab for the VCH endpoint VM, restart the vSphere Web Client service. For instructions about how to restart the vSphere Web Client service, see vSphere Integrated Containers Engine Plug-In Does Not Appear in the vSphere Web Client.
