Fix Recommendation

Edit the "webclient.properties" file to set the "show.allusers.tasks" value to "true".

The default location for the "webclient.properties" file are:

Appliance:
/etc/vmware/vsphere-client/

Windows:
C:\ProgramData\VMware\vCenterServer\cfg\vsphere-client\

After editing the file the vSphere Web Client service will need to be restarted.

Check Contents

Verify the "webclient.properties" file contains the line "show.allusers.tasks = true".

The default location for the "webclient.properties" file are:

Appliance:
/etc/vmware/vsphere-client/

Windows:
C:\ProgramData\VMware\vCenterServer\cfg\vsphere-client\

If "show.allusers.tasks" is not set to "true", this is a finding.
