While I’d love to be able to claim I was clever enough to think of this on my own, that would straight up be lying (I really am not all that clever :). Well, it would be more than lying, I’d not be giving proper credit to his awesomeness Rich Brambley at VM/Etc for coming up with this gem.
I encourage you to click through to the complete article for some additional tips & tricks. For those who can’t wait, it consists of selecting the “Programs” tab of the Terminal Services Client Window and specifying the path to the application:
For me this path includes the pass through auth parameter, as well, RDP prompts you once… why type more? The end result looks like:
C:\Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure\Virtual Infrastructure Client\Launcher\VpxClient.exe -passthroughAuth -s virtualcenter.domain.local
Again, my thanks to Rich for sorting this one out. Hard to believe I lived without it.
