Issue/Introduction

Symptoms:
  • Customizing the Portal webpage with a different background color fails in VMware vCloud Networking & Security 5.x and NSX for vSphere 6.x Edge SSL VPN.
  • Configuring the background color on the SSL VPN fails.
  • The default VMware blue color is seen behind the logo instead of the expected display.


Environment

VMware NSX for vSphere 6.0.x
VMware NSX for vSphere 6.1.x
VMware vCloud Networking and Security 5.1.x
VMware vCloud Networking and Security 5.5.x

Cause

This issue occurs due to the background image file that the portal webpage source is using that overrides the configured background color in the SSL VPN web portal.

Resolution

This issue is resolved in VMware NSX for vSphere 6.1.3.

Important:

NSX-v 6.1.3 is no longer available for download due to the upgrade issue noted in VMware Knowledge Base article 2117804. See also VMware Knowledge Base article 2119020.

Observe these recommendations if you are considering an installation or upgrade of VMware NSX for vSphere:
  • To install a fresh NSX for vSphere deployment, use NSX-v 6.1.4.
  • To upgrade from NSX-v 6.1.2 or earlier, download NSX-v 6.1.4, available at VMware Downloads and upgrade to 6.1.4 directly. For more information, see the NSX for vSphere 6.1.4 Release Notes.
  • If your installation is running NSX 6.1.3, do not upgrade to NSX 6.1.4. As of 27 May 2015, there are no critical issues reported against NSX-v 6.1.3. If you require an upgrade from NSX-v 6.1.3 in order to get one of the fixes provided in NSX-v 6.1.4, contact VMware support for assistance with your upgrade, and read VMware Knowledge Base article 2117804.
If you have already upgraded from NSX 6.1.3 to NSX 6.1.4, see VMware Knowledge Base article 2117804.

Note: This is a cosmetic issue and has no impact on the functionality of the SSL VPN service.
