Unable to connect to the MKS: SSL required -Virtual Machine Console

So I built a new VM today and when I deployed it from one of my templates and powered it on I was unable to see anything under  the "Console" menu and on top it gave me a little message saying "Unable to connect to the MKS: SSL require"

So I had to go login to the host console using the root password on  the physical host and edit the config file:

Edit the /etc/vmware/config file

  • Change the value for security.host.ruissl = "FALSE" to "TRUE"

After that the message went away and I was able to see my VM under the console tab.
