After changing our vCenter servers recently, the old vCenter server is still listed in the VMWare vSphere Client login dialog in the IP Address / Name: drop down. Is there a way to remove the old/invalid entries from this dropdown?


That list is stored in a Registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\VMware\VMware Infrastructure Client\Preferences\RecentConnections.

  • That was it. I'd been looking around there but not at that particular key. Thank you. – music2myear Feb 10 '12 at 21:31
  • Found the registry key, and deleted it, but it still appears in dropdown. Does computer require a reboot? – Gerrat Nov 6 '14 at 15:11

They're saved in a registry key but the exact path varies based on VSClient version, just do a search on the vCenter server name in regedit, there's probably little other reason for that string to be in there.
