Please follow & like us :)

Today I wanted to bring you a quick video to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Thank you to everyone for your support in 2018 and I look forward to bringing you more video tutorials in 2019

With that being said, I would like to demonstrate the new VMware vCenter 6.7 Update 1 Dark Theme, what it looks like and how to switch to it from the default white theme. It’s very simple to switch to the new theme and back again, and I think you will all be quite impressed with the new theme colours.

Let us know what you think by leaving a comment below, do you prefer the original white theme or the new dark theme ?

  1. Is there any way to enable the dark theme for just your user account, and not affect other users? I have a strong feeling that is no, but that would be great. Because we have 7 vCenters connected across the nation, and not everyone will like it. I love it though. It’s way better! What if… we have those 7 vcenters connected, can I just enable it on one vcenter in the list of vCenters, and the rest will remain white so I don’t upset anyone? Thank you.

    • Hi Greg, great question, I had a look at this today in my lab as I have 2 x vcenter 6.7u3 servers in enhanced linked mode. You’re right, I also think the black theme looks better. In my test I have 2 users: ‘[email protected]’ and ‘[email protected]’. When I log into vcenter-a as either user and change the theme to dark, it also changed the theme to dark for all users. However when I logged into vcenter-b the theme had not changed, it was still as default. Same thing happened on vcenter-b when I changed the theme to dark, it changed it for all users.
      When I logged into vcenter-a with either user from a difference computer and browser, it went back to white. So it looks like it keeps the setting within the browser and computer.
