Issue


VCD virtual server console is not accessible from the OnApp side.

The most common issue here is where the console shows "Connected" but does not show anything or the flash message is permanently showing "Trying to connect..."

OnApp uses the same API call as the VMware Cloud Director native UI, so it will commonly also not work directly in VCD as well.

Environment


OnApp 5.2.x (and later) with VMware Cloud Director integration

Resolution


You should check that the console proxy has been configured in System > Administrator > Public Addresses and ensure that the domain used is also publicly accessible without ACL restrictions.

Cause


This error usually occurs due to the console proxy being misconfigured within VMware Cloud Director.
