Google Chrome 43 and VMware Web Client Issues

VMware is very behind on updating their web plugins. If you are using Google Chrome latest version 43 (with defaults) then you likely are having issues connecting to VMware vCenter VM consoles using VMRC, the VMware Client Integration Plugin, and the Plugin for VMware vRA (vCAC) for integrated windows auth.

By changing these 2 extensions detailed below both the consoles access (vCenter) and integrated auth (vRA/vCAC) now work using Google Chrome 43.
This fix works for Chrome using Mac or PC.

VMware enters the hot hyper-converged market

A new market has slowly taken shape on the heels of the success of converged infrastructure. When IT teams are looking at the vBlock or FlexPod they now must consider if an even smaller infrastructure footprint would be more appropriate for the specific use case. This is where Nutanix, Simplevity, & HC3 have previously ruled the roost. Now that VMware has entered the market armed with vSAN there is a serious 800 lb gorilla in the room.
