VI Client SSL thumbprint cache cleanup

Duncan at Yellow Bricks has a handy post on cleaning up your VI Client cached server address list.

There is a related issue with cached self-signed SSL certificate thumbprints.  When you first connect to a VirtualCenter Server or ESX host, you see a dialog box:

By checking that box, the SSL certificate thumbprint is cached in your registry and you won’t be prompted again as long as there is a match.

If you ever want to take a quick look at the list, try this in a cmd window:

reg query "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\VMware\Virtual Infrastructure Client\Preferences\UI\SSLIgnore" /s
