  1. I may have jumped the gun on that one because it looks like its now an add-on you have to install onto vCenter:http://virtualisedreality.com/2011/07/15/vsphere-5-new-vsphere-web-client/
    but I'm studying for VCP4 and I recall this in the release notes:
    vSphere 4.1 is the last product release for vSphere Web Access. As a best practice, VMware recommends that you use the vSphere Client, which contains all the functionality of Web Access. Because vSphere Web Access is no longer being developed, support for this product is provided on a best effort basis.”.
