“VMware vCenter Support Assistant” is free plug-in for VMware vCenter sever which gives the administrators the ability to creates and manage request while creating and uploading log files.
From VMware vCenter Support Assistant 5.1, it’s now possible to use it alongside the “VMware vSphere Web Client” so there’s no more need to use multiple application.
And now, new version (5.1.1) is out, just few days after release of new vSphere 5.5 and this new version got the “uploading log file” capability again.
Other than return of upload functionality, some other known bug has been fixed and new capabilities (like updating underlying appliance OS with latest security patch) has been added as well, for review of all changes it’s better to check “Release Notes” while downloading and using it. 😉
