#StackBounty: #vmware-vcenter VMware vCenter Server Appliance VAMI (https://vCSA:5480) stuck on "Getting Started – vCenter Server&…

Bounty: 200

This vCSA was recently upgraded from 6.7u3 to 7.0. The vCenter is 100% operational from a vSphere perspective. However, we cannot get into the VAMI (vCenter Appliance Manager Interface) at https://vCSA:5480

This is very bad because we cannot update, upgrade or backup the vCSA without access to the VAMI. To be clear, we can login but there is a blank white window in the center of the web-UI and this text is behind it:

“vCenter Server 7.0 has been successfully installed. However, additional steps must be completed before it is available for use.
Click one of the links below to continue setup. vCenter has been
restored. However, additional steps must be completed before it is
available for use. Click the link below to continue.

This vCenter Server cannot be used or repaired because a failure was encountered. You need to deploy a new vCenter Server. Failure

Can this be fixed? If so, how?

#StackBounty: #vmware-esxi #virtual-machines #vmware-vcenter #vmware-vsan With a vsan issue where you cant access vcenter, should you s…

Bounty: 50

So I have a vsan cluster, 4 esxi hosts all contributing to vsan as well as compute. Vcenter lives in esxi01. Esxi01 is not responding and I cannot open the web gui.

I can still ping every vm and ssh into most. I believe esxi01 is out of file descriptors.

Is it best to ssh into all vms in the environment (linux vms) and shut them down that way since vcenter isnt available or should I reboot esxi01 with everything online so vcenter is semi aware of everything’s last state?

Thank you. Wasnt finding much online for this scenario.

#StackBounty: #vmware-vcenter #windows-firewall What port/s does VMware Workstation use to connect to a vCenter server?

Bounty: 50

We have a vCenter Server running in Windows. I am trying to connect to the vCenter server in VMware Workstation 12 via File -> Connect to Server

With the Windows Firewall on, the connection times out and fails. When I turn off the Windows Firewall (domain profile) on the VM which hosts vCenter, the connection is successful. I have opened every port on this list on the Windows firewall, but the connection is still failing. What is missing here?

EDIT: Can I use Wireshark (or similar) to run a packet-capture while I connect VMware Workstation to the vCSA 6.7 VM? I believe that would show me exactly what is blocked, which would allow me to open the appropriate ports.
