VCUI-67-000031 - vSphere UI must not be configured with the 'UserDatabaseRealm' enabled - UserDatabaseRealm enabled.

Warning! Audit Deprecated

This audit has been deprecated and will be removed in a future update.

View Next Audit Version


The vSphere UI performs user authentication at the application level and not through Tomcat. By default, there is no configuration for the 'UserDatabaseRealm' Tomcat authentication mechanism.

To eliminate unnecessary features and ensure that the vSphere UI remains in its shipping state, the lack of a UserDatabaseRealm configuration must be confirmed.


Navigate to and open /usr/lib/vmware-vsphere-ui/server/conf/server.xml.

Remove any and all <Realm> nodes.
