How to audit vSphere Standalone VMRC or HTML5 VMRC connections–virtuallyghetto
An interesting question that came in last week from one of our TAMs was how to identify and audit Virtual Machine Remote Console (VMRC) logins from vSphere? The TAM was specifically interested in being able to correlate that a particular user had logged into the VMRC of a VM during a specific period of time.

The Events can be accessed using either the vSphere Web Client shown below or programmatically using the vSphere API which the UI is built on top of.
