Aka vSphere Hardening – Part 6
In Part 4 of this series, we ended with the collection of Data from our vCenter Server.
Before we continue, I will point to a few issues I have encountered while working with vCM.
First, while opening one of the Dashboards (Console -> Dashboards -> Select dashboard), the following error message was received; “An error has occurred performing an SRS security request. You must use Internet Explorer with the Run as administrator option to view dashboard reports when working locally on the Collector.”
VMware has multiple Knowledge Base articles discussing this error. The one that solved the problem in my case was KB “SSRS authentication must be configured in two-tier and three-tier installation environments that use Basic authentication (2000082)”. Also note, I run a one-tier installation!
But that was not all…
