In part 1 and part 2 of this series about the vCSA, we have covered topics like; the shells, filesystem, services, health, logging, database and some extra tools. Recently I realised there a few more topics worth mentioning.

Appliance MUI

In pre 6.0 releases of the vCSA, there was a vCenter Server Appliance Management Interface, better known as the VAMI. This management interface is written in HTML5 and is now called the e Appliance Management User Interface (Appliance MUI).
