VMware HOL online – Lab status : Waiting for Web client

Share This:

I came across couple of times that the LAB hasn’t successfully kick in. If that happens to you don’t panic.

You should be able to access vCentre Server appliance using the credentials supplied in the lab and start vSphere web client service.

Quick steps if you not sure how to.

If your Lab status says “waiting for web client” you will not be able to access sphere web client using firefox:

Web client URL













And you’ll notice that the lab isn’t Ready yet:
