The Performance Overview tab fails to display with the error: Navigation to the webpage was cancelled

So went round and round with this one, and finally found the answer on expertsexchange (no thanks to a couple of vmware KB articles) http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1014454

The answer is a crypic change of server.xml

 

For 64 bit machines there is a Windows update and for Windows XP 32 bit there is a bit of a hack to perform.

I would recommend that you back up the server.xml file that is edited for this

Windows XP 32 bit hack - I would recommend to stop the VC service first

1) on the vCenter Server machine go to %PROGRAM_FILES%\VMware\Infrastructure\tomcat\conf
2) open the "server.xml" file
3) Look for the following XML element:
<Connector port="8443"...></Connector>
4) Modify the 'ciphers' attribute to the following value:

ciphers="SSL_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_MD5, SSL_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_SHA, TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA, TLS_DHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA, TLS_DHE_DSS_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA, SSL_RSA_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA, SSL_DHE_RSA_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA, SSL_DHE_DSS_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA"

5) Restart the vCenter server service
