Starting with vSphere 6.0 Update 2, you can include a Login Banner with your environment. You can display some text, or you can require that the user click a check box, for example, to indicate that they accept terms and conditions. You can enable and disable the login banner, and you can require that users click an explicit consent check box.


  1. From a Web browser, connect to the Platform Services Controller by specifying the following URL:
    In an embedded deployment, the Platform Services Controller host name or IP address is the same as the vCenter Server host name or IP address.
  2. Specify the user name and password for administrator@vsphere.local or another member of the vCenter Single Sign-On Administrators group.
    If you specified a different domain during installation, log in as administrator@ mydomain.
  3. Under Single Sign-On, select Configuraton and click the Login Banner tab.
  4. Click Edit and configure the login banner.
