I recently wrote about the release of the vSphere HTML5 Web Client Fling and how to configure it. Since then there has already been an update to the Fling. I’ve gone through update process in my lab using the rpm, but I also decided to deploy a new OVA (version 1.1) and found a few hidden features.
During the configuration of the appliance I found a directory called “vspherefeatures”. The directory contains a configuration file with three disabled entries. Of course the first thing that came to mind is what’s the harm in just enabling one to see what happens. What happened was me enabling all three after seeing the first one worked.
The Three hidden features are Datastore File Browser, Add Host Wizard, and Network Selector. I’m assuming that these are features that will be available in future releases of the vSphere HTML5 Web Client Fling. For now looks like we can get a sneak peak 🙂
