A general system error occurred: alias value should not be empty

 

Cause

This issue occurs when the Active Directory Identity Sources are not available.
This issue may also occur while SSO is starting up, or for a period of time after start-up. This occurs when the number of domains in the Active Directory forest is large.

Resolution

This is a known issue affecting:

  • VMware vCenter Server 5.5.0b (Build 1476327)
  • VMware vCenter Server 5.5.0 Update 1 (Build 1623101)
  • VMware vCenter Server Appliance 5.5.0b (Build 1476327)
  • VMware vCenter Server Appliance 5.5.0 Update 1 (Build 1623101)

This issue is resolved in vCenter Server 5.5 Update 2, available at VMware Downloads. For more information, see the Resolved Issues section in the vCenter Server 5.5 Update 2 Release Notes.
