The vCenter Server tasks that you can perform when you connect directly to vCenter Server with the vSphere Client are limited.

The following vCenter Server features are unavailable or read-only in the vSphere Client:

  • Runtime settings

  • Licensing reports

  • Certificate management

  • Creating and managing categories and tags

Use the vSphere Web Client as the primary interface for managing the full range of vCenter Server functions available in your vSphere 6.0 environment.
