VCH Administration Portal

vSphere Integrated Containers Engine provides a Web-based administration portal for virtual container hosts (VCHs), called VCH Admin.

If you deployed the VCH with --no-tls or --no-tlsverify, you log in to VCH Admin by specifying the user name and password of the ESXi host or vCenter Server on which you deployed the VCH. If you deployed the VCH with client and server authentication by using --tls-cname or by specifying a static IP address on the client network, you can use the generated *.pfx certificate to authenticate with the VCH Admin portal. For information about using the *.pfx certificate to log into VCH admin, see Browser-Based Certificate Login and Command Line Certificate Login.

You access the VCH Admin portal in the following places:

  • In the HTML5 vSphere Client, go to Home > vSphere Integrated Containers > vSphere Integrated Containers > Virtual Container Hosts and click the link to the VCH Admin portal.
  • In the HTML5 vSphere Client or Flex-based vSphere Web Client, got to Hosts and Clusters, select a VCH endpoint VM, and click the link to the VCH Admin portal in the Summary tab.
  • Copy the address of the VCH Admin portal from the output of vic-machine create or vic-machine inspect.

After you log in, the VCH Admin portal displays information about the VCH and the environment in which is running:

If you see a certificate error when you attempt to log in to the VCH Administration Portal, see Browser Rejects Certificates with ERR_CERT_INVALID Error.
